3-Panel Cypress Wood French Doors
When it comes to recommending a wood based on beauty and durability, cypress is hard to beat. Legend has it that Noah’s Ark was built of cypress wood, as were the original doors of St. Peter’s Basilica–which lasted 1,100 years! Because cypress produces its own preservative oil, it is naturally resistant to decay, insects, and corrosion. It is also an exceptionally stable wood against warping and splitting. Seen growing tall and stately in areas around the American South, and particularly majestic in swampy areas like South Louisiana, cypress is a uniquely American wood. These gorgeous antique French doors carry their own storied history, as they were reclaimed from a more-than-100-year-old Victorian home, and feature antique poured glass windows in addition to their sturdy cypress frames.
