Types of vintage cupboard


Vintage cupboards are the perfect way to boost your storage space without compromising on the look of your interiors. These fine examples of craftsmanship bring you the best and most iconic designs from throughout the 20th Century. An era optimized by hugely varying styles, you’re almost guaranteed to find one that suits whatever space is in need of some storage.

No matter what style your space is decked out with—vintage, traditional or retro furniture, we’ve got a cupboard for you. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite types of vintage cupboards…

Display cupboards with shelves and glass doors are perfect for showing off books, vintage accessories and kitchenware. Display cupboards and dressers are often made from wood and might only feature doors on the lower half of the cabinet.

Wall-mounted and corner cupboards make great use of space in smaller rooms. As the name suggests, corner cupboards fit snugly into the corners of your room, making the best use of space. They’re traditionally made from wood and feature shelving at the top and a cupboard door on the lower half of the unit.

Larder cupboards are a wonderful addition to a traditional rustic country kitchen and provide a practical space to store dry foods and groceries, with panelled doors that let you see what’s in stock.

Armoirs are traditional French-style wardrobes usually carved from wood, with intricate carvings and detail, and a curved shape to the doors. These are delightful additions to shabby chic style spaces and rooms with a traditional French feel. You’ll find all of these and more in our eclectic selection of vintage cupboards.


Vintage linen cupboards

This one deserves a section all of its own. Linen cupboards are some of the most popular types of vintage cupboards because everyone needs a place to put the washing. Small linen cupboards are perfect for in bathroom storage for extra towels and keeping toiletries tidy. Whereas large linen cabinets are perfect for hallway storage so everyone has easy access to additional sheets and blankets.


Ways to use your vintage cupboard


A stunning vintage cupboard is perfect for keeping everything organised, and it can be used in any room. In the kitchen and dining room, traditional dressers look wonderful loaded with antique and retro bowls, plates and vintage glassware. In the bedroom, they can double up as small linen cupboards, spacious enough for storing bedding and blankets, and in children’s rooms they are perfect for storing toys and games. You can even have a vintage cupboard in the living room. Mid-century Scandinavian designs create a minimalist look in both modern and retro spaces, while art-deco drinks cabinets look great in 1930s living and dining rooms.


Vintage cupboards from every era


The vintage cupboards in our collection have stood the test of time—some date as far back as the seventeenth century. You’ll also find plenty of more recent creations in the mix, with stunningly simple Scandinavian designs which exude understated elegance, alongside more ornate antique armoirs and traditional Welsh dressers. Whatever look you’re trying to achieve, a vintage cupboard or linen cabinet from the right period can bring it all together.
