We talked in previous posts about how computer armoires are terrific ways to keep the cords and all of the clutter that comes with a desk top out of sight when not in use. The Camden Cream Computer Armoire is no different. It is equipped with space for CPUs, slide-out keyboard, adjustable shelves and even a dry erase door on the inside of the right door. The Camden is one of many traditional armoires from American Drew collection which is known expert construction and design.
The American Drew Collection Marbella Armoire with its cherry and birch veneers in a rich distressed finish would fit equally as well in a purely traditional décor as it would in a hacienda style home. Its raised panel door and drawer fronts with intricate hand carved motifs, metal scroll work and stone accents set atop carved bun feet make it a grand and stately show piece. The Marbella is designed to be an entertainment center fitting a 41” television or as a wardrobe armoire with shelves for linens and space for hanging clothes. This piece is rates high above most traditional armoires in its price range.

Face it computers are a major part of most of our lives, but along with this modern necessity comes a lot of hardware, cables, towers, and monitors. There’s absolutely no redeeming aesthetic qualities to any of the computer mess we deal with on a daily basis and the home décor we work so hard to achieve can be overlooked and the computer mess becomes the focal point of the room. The answer? A computer armoire.
Just as we try to hide the mess of our televisions, VCRs, DVDs and game consoles away in entertainment centers and armoires, now it’s time to get the computer mess in your living room or bedroom cleaned up once and for all too. I'm just as guilty, my home office is a complete mess of every computer and printing device you can think of and it clutters my mind not to mention my space.
So I went on the hunt for the very best computer armoire StylePath had to offer, but instead I found several and am having trouble deciding. But take a look at the one I’m leaning towards. Maybe it will be just perfect for you too.

It’s true babies are a bundle of joy. It’s also true along with baby and the joy comes a whole bushel of stuff. When you start thinking of all the nursery necessities required to take care of your little one properly, you’ll also be amazed how much room you’ll need to store it. A nursery armoire provides a great solution to store all the blankets, mattress liners, fitted sheets and so forth you will accrue. With drawer space and shelving, the armoires below provide space for extra items baby receives as gifts such as clothing to be grown into, extra towels and baby toys.
We really love these French style white armoires as they’ll work nicely no matter whether your little one is a boy or a girl. Either one of these is sure to become a family heirloom.
The British Traditions French Armoire lends itself to the French provincial style which is known for its hardwoods in painted finishes. This particular piece would work well in a semi-formal to formal baby’s room with its brass hardware, crown paneled moldings, carved legs and scalloped skirt.
Elegant and graceful, the Honfleur Carved Armoire is another British Traditions’ masterpiece. Raised-paneled double doors and a handy bottom drawer are decorated with delicate carving which extends to the scalloped skirt and petite cabriole legs.
