  1. We call them wardrobes, or armoires, and they’re one of my favorite pieces of furniture. My grandmother had built-in closets, but many of her friends had only wardrobes.

    I don’t have room for one now, so I content myself with a cedar chest, and a small oak chest my grandfather built with wood from their first dining room table!

  2. Hi Linda:

    This type of cabinets or armoires are not common in Panama. You can only find them in antiques’ stores at very high prices. Finding them here was a most pleasant surprise.

    The owner of the hotel made sure all the furniture blended well with the decorations of the old structure.

    I plan to return with my wife to enjoy a nostalgic breakfast at this gorgeous place at Casco Viejo.

    Thank you for your visits to Lingua Franca.

    Regards,

    Omar.-
