What is a vintage armoire?


Armoires are large two-door cupboards, usually classed as vintage or antique wardrobes. Originally a French design that originated in the 17th Century, they tend to feature intricate ornate designs, typical of French design style. Most original armoires are antique, although newer vintage styles and remakes are available.

Armoires are freestanding, with two doors that can be used just like a normal wardrobe. Often featuring mirrors on the doors, they come in a huge variety of styles, shapes, colours, materials and sizes. Typically armoires are used as wardrobes because of their great storage options, often featuring shelves and hanging space, but they can also be used as bathroom cupboards, hallway storage, or even kitchen storage.

So what is the difference between an Armoire and a wardrobe?


Good question. Usually, armoires are larger than wardrobes and typically have both hanging space and shelves either along one side of the interior or at the top and bottom. Occasionally armoires also feature draws at the bottom too. Wardrobes on the other hand tend to be slightly smaller and focus more on hanging space over any additional shelves. Armoires also often feature far more ornate carvings or intricate little details, like wooden patterns and trims along the top, whereas wardrobes tend to be simpler and more straightforward in their designs.

Whether you opt for an armoire or a wardrobe, it's really down to a preference of style and what kind of storage space you need. You can check out our full range of wardrobes to see our full selection.
