Choosing a wardrobe is one of the most important decisions you will make in your home. After all, it is the first thing you will see when you open your eyes in the morning and the last thing you see before you close them at night. With that in mind, the way you style your bedroom and the furniture you choose can have a real impact on your wellbeing. That’s why we believe that a 1950s wardrobe is a great choice in your home – a sophisticated but restrained piece that adds elegance and style without overpowering your bedroom.

Why choose 1950s wardrobes

The 1950s welcomed in a very different style to that of the early 20th or even 19th century designs. While previous eras such as the Victorian, Edwardian, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods had been about ornate, bold and sometimes brash stylings, the 1950s offered a more pared back and subtle style. And nowhere is this more evident than in the wardrobes of the time. Gone were the gilt edges, the intricate wooden carvings and the showy brass feet; in came more sleek and simple designs that made the most of woods such as teak and rosewood. In particular, the 1950s saw a surge in the popularity of Scandinavian design – which is why many of the designers you will see here among our listings are of Danish descent.

One of the reasons that 1950s wardrobes are so well suited to the homes of today is the versatility that such minimalist style offers. These vintage pieces work just as well in a Scandi themed room as they do in an industrial or shabby chic interior. Similarly, if you have a relatively calm and quiet design scheme in your bedroom, a 1950s wardrobe can quickly add a touch of character and a subtle touch of class without looking out of place.

To get a feel for 1950s wardrobes, why not search our listings for a mahogany Stag minstrel double wardrobe – a functional yet beautiful design. Alternatively, look to teak wardrobes by the likes of Kofod Larsen for G Plan.
