Armoires & Wardrobes
Complete your bedroom with a handmade French armoire to sit alongside your beautiful French furniture. Our wardrobes and armoires are hand-carved by master craftsmen and will stand the test of time in both the heirloom and style stakes!
What is an armoire?
Arguably one of the most magnificent furniture pieces of the 17th century, the armoire is the perfect addition to any sophisticated boudoir with its truly quintessentially French features. An armoire is essentially a large cupboard that is both practical and multifunctional. Often utilised in the bedroom, perhaps its first duty is to store clothes, bedding and soft furnishings, although the incredible functionality of an armoire means that it can be found in almost any room around the home. Offering excellent organisation and elegance, it provides an envious alternative to the modern wardrobe.
There is an extensive range of styles, colours, and sizes, all of which are built to last. Here at the French Bedroom Company, we adore reclaimed French designs, with natural, unfinished, distressed and weathered finishes, featuring an undeniable French country style.
What is an armoire used for?
In its early history, an armoire was used to store armour, equipment, tools and weaponry. However, in modern times, the armoire is now synonymous with clothing storage. It is tall in stature and has multiple uses around the home, ensuring it is not necessarily limited to clothing, but rather has the flexibility to store homewares, dining sets, soft furnishings at much more. We’ve even seen armoires used as a popular alternative to a home working space, or entertainment centre, helping to provide a clutter free space that can simply be closed away when not in use.
What is the difference between an armoire and a wardrobe?
An armoire serves more of a purpose than that of just the simple standard wardrobe. The storage options are abundant with hanging space, shelves and draws which can be altered according to individual needs.
The armoire boasts a traditional and ornate style which is sure to create a focal point for a room, whilst also providing excellent functionality in many situations. It is the perfect addition to a bedroom and can provide a je ne sais quoi that the average wardrobe simply does not, combining functionality with a luxurious aesthetic, whilst adding a piece of historical character to a room.
What can you put in an armoire?
The real question is simply what can’t you put in an armoire! Due to its incredible versatility, the options really are endless. Normally used as an alternative to a wardrobe, an armoire could also be used as an organised way to store jewellery and small accessories as well as shoes. Its height however makes it perfect for hanging pieces, as well as the choice of having full length mirrors on each of its doors. Moreover, with the addition of draws and shelving, storing your linens and towels is also a viable option. An armoire can be adapted to meet each person's storage requirements, whilst elegantly adding both a focal point and sophisticated feel to a room.
Style and design - we love to chat!
