Is a French armoire a type of wardrobe?

A French armoire can be considered a type of wardrobe. However, while a wardrobe is primarily for hanging clothes using a rail system, a French armoire is multi-functional. A French armoire wardrobe can house drawers, boxes, rails, and hidden compartments. They can be used in the same way as a wardrobe, or they can adorn dining rooms or living spaces to store crockery, treasured possessions, hobby materials, or anything else you can think of.

Historically, antique French armoires originated in 17th century France and they were designed by André-Charles Boulle. His reputation as a cabinetmaker was second-to-none and he was chosen by Louis XIV to make his furniture. They are luxurious, generally larger than a wardrobe, and are beautiful timeless pieces for today’s modern homes.
