Whether it's an antique chest of drawers or a vintage teak Danish sideboard, finding the right furniture to store items in is an increasing priority for most households. Fortunately, whilst designers are often best known for their iconic sofas and chairs, a large number also spend time creating updated versions of credenzas, sideboards, chest of drawers and cabinets for us to use in our homes. This has led to a huge variety of Contemporary, Mid-Century Modern and Art Deco styles being available, and it gives you the chance to really express your style through the storage pieces you choose for your home!
What are the different types of storage?Storage comes in such a wide range of shapes and sizes that it is beneficial to know a little more about the different types before you buy. Sideboards, wardrobes and cabinets are only some of the storage options available to you, so take a look at our guide to some of the most popular storage choices before you make your decision.
Armoires and WardrobesA staple of every bedroom, wardrobes are used to hang clothes to maximise the use of the space available within a room. With Armoires and Chiffoniers both coming under the wardrobe umbrella, you have a lot of choice when it comes to your preferred style, and sizes will also vary from piece to piece. Many wardrobes made in the early 20th century are now great examples of vintage storage furniture items, so the decision is purely down to personal preference when looking to purchase a wardrobe.
Bookcases and ShelvesUtilitarian by their very nature, bookcases and shelves were initially designed to serve very specific purposes. The former as a place to store books, and the latter as a place to store any other small items. However, as consumer preferences changed and designers began to push the limits of what was possible, bookcases and shelves became another furniture item in the home through which people could express themselves. From the Art Deco designs of the 1920’s through to the Mid Century Modern pieces of the 1950’s, there is no end to the creativity on show in the design of bookcases and shelves.
CabinetsCabinets, much like their close relative the cupboard, are very versatile furniture items and they can serve a purpose in most rooms in the home. Perfect for storing anything from clothes through to crockery, some cabinets can also be used as a way to present items with many people using them to display collections of fine China. If you are looking for a piece of contemporary storage furniture for your home, then a cabinet could be the way to go.
