Whether sleeping, dressing or merely relaxing, we spend more hours in the bedroom than in any other room in the house. After a comfy bed, the most important consideration when furnishing a bedroom is storage, and a wardrobe will not only provide a home for your clothes but a focal point to give your room personality. An Edwardian wardrobe will enhance rather than dominate your bedroom, with a range of woods and colours to suit all tastes. Browse Vinterior’s range of Edwardian wardrobes for the perfect solution to your storage needs.

Why choose Edwardian wardrobes?

A well-chosen wardrobe is not only functional but brings a sense of both elegance and homeliness to the bedroom. Do you have an unused alcove in your room? Fill it with a slim two-door wardrobe to provide additional storage and character. In contrast to the imposing, heavy, dark furniture that typified the Victorian era, Edwardian furniture was a lot lighter and reflected Edward VII’s taste for luxury and extravagance. Matched with candy striped or floral-patterned wallpaper and some carefully selected accessories such as cushions with a floral motif in the Art Nouveau style, the right wardrobe can give your bedroom the complete Edwardian look.

Whilst mahogany was the dominant wood of the era, designers began experimenting with different timbers and shades and our range also offers a number of hand painted wardrobes to add a subtle splash of colour.

If space is at a premium, select a wardrobe with a mirrored front to provide added depth to your room. This is also a practical addition to help you get dressed and ready in the morning. While Edwardian houses began to get smaller, the size of furniture reflected this. However there are still some majestic larger pieces featured here on our online marketplace, from triple-fronted wardrobes to a carved mahogany compactum.

If you don’t wish to embrace the full Edwardian look, an antique wardrobe added to a modern home can provide elegance and a stunning contrast to a contemporary style. Whether it is small details such as a nod to the Queen Anne period with curved feet or machined inlays that were popular during this era, each feature adds an additional piece of character to your room.

Simplicity and sophistication are not easy to achieve yet an Edwardian wardrobe offers both.

In an age that produced the first Model T Ford and the first sustained aeroplane flight by the Wright brothers, innovation was coupled with the beginning of mass production. This is reflected in Vinterior’s range of wardrobes, with clever design and storage solutions matched with the ability to reproduce the best features of previous periods.
