Malachite Inspired Armoire Desk and Chair

By Jennifer Ross, Furniture Artist of Scenic Route, LLC, Owner/Furniture Artist at Scenic Route, LLC in Elkins, AR.

Malachite, is often called “the stone of transformation”, and what a transformation indeed! This vintage armoire is now a functional work space for the design-minded individual with little room for an office. Much like the gemstone, the vibrant greens and banded patterns give off a sense of energy as they dance along the surfaces. We added a light to brighten it up for late night research. The desk space slides out, making it a comfortable seating area, along with a slide out tray for the printer. Three drawers can stow away copy paper and other office utensils. The chair is also a jewel, hand painted to match and unique upholstery! This set will surely create a happy work space for your room!
