Antique French Armoires - Complements every bedroom

An armoire is perfect for every type of bedroom decor, providing historical glamour that’s understated and subtle. Fluid lines combined with an ornate appearance allow this type of French wardrobe to complement the rest of your furniture and decor.

Antique pieces have a beauty that’s unparalleled in contemporary designs, and this is never truer than with an armoire. A free-standing piece of furniture, an armoire is a type of tall cupboard with at least two doors and a variety of shelves, vertical hanging spaces and possibly drawers too. It offers practical storage but in a way that’s stylish and attractive too.

By its definition an armoire may sound just like a wardrobe but just one glance will reveal the difference. Flawlessly elegant, an armoire is one of the most ornate and sumptuous pieces of classic French furniture and will add a certain sophistication to your bedroom decor. Vinterior has a wonderful range of French armoires so head over and get ready to be inspired.

Use your imagination

While an armoire looks stunning as part of any boudoir setting, it can be a useful piece of furniture elsewhere in the home too. It only takes a little imagination and you’ll soon find an array of places where you could show the armoire off at its best.

Many designs have glass panels in the doors, making them perfect for displays. In the kitchen and dining area, an armoire could house crockery to stunning effect while in the lounge, cherished books and treasured ornaments will find a home.

The sublime curves and mastery of the carvings in a traditional French armoire look beautiful in a classic setting, accentuating the rest of your decor and adding real panache.

Perfect for shabby chic too

French armoires are typically most associated with an immaculate finish, with every tiny piece of wood and inlay polished and flawless. However, it’s a versatile piece of furniture and looks surprisingly at home amongst shabby chic decor too.

Choose a white, duck egg blue or grey colour with a distressed appearance rather than the highly polished and shiny finish to fit in with a more rustic setting. You’ll still have the benefit from the same intricate detailing which is found on all period French armoires. The contrast between this highly decorative design and the shabby finish creates a dreamy piece that is authentically vintage too.

Traditional French furniture has an undeniable appeal that transcends the individual style and design of your decor. So whether you opt for a mirrored, painted, carved or glass-fronted armoire, you’ll find that it suits your home to perfection.
