What exactly is an armoire?
Armoires date back to medieval times when they were used for holding weapons and armor - which is where the furniture got its name. The early French were known to decorate their armoires heavily with lovely painting and some architectural elements. Because of that, antique French armoires are regarded as some of the Western world's finest pieces of furniture on the market today.
Armoires were considered one of the most prized possessions in a home and were used by both royal, affluent people and the non-royals. They are one of the best pieces of antique furniture because of their masterful construction, quality materials, and elaborate wood carvings.
They're typically large, free-standing cabinets with two doors known to conceal a primary section with a mix of both hanging spaces and shelving spaces. Besides the central section, the majority of armoires have additional drawers where you can store some personal effects.
Over time, people began to craft armoires for a variety of purposes. Craftsmen began to create armoires to serve the same function as a drawer or cupboard. At EuroLux, our collection of antique armoires and cabinets includes armoires, wardrobes, closets, cabinets, chests of drawers, china cabinets, bars, and bookcases.
Why Use Antique Armoires and Cabinets?
Whether you choose a French Country, French Provincial, or Wardrobe armoire, each piece of furniture has a decorative and functional use you'll appreciate. If you're looking to add style and elegance to your room and, at the same time, store away properties to prevent clutters, these armoires are what you should get. They have fine finishing, rare detailed design, and attractive look.
The typical armoire features sturdy wood such as walnut, oak, or mahogany. Some of them feature a mirrored door, wood door, or if the owner wishes to display collectible items such as china, a glass door. Depending on the individual piece, the armoire may also feature a hutch or shelf to provide extra storage. Many of them are decorated with a lovely wood finish, but many are adorned with paint to add a splash of color to your decor.
Some pieces feature material beyond solid wood, with additions such as lacquers or a beveled mirror.
