One of these pieces would be a great way to add style do your bedroom furniture. From inlaid pine armoires to rosewood sideboard, you're bound to be satisfied.

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.

Practical and Impressive

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. 

Inlaid Furniture

From 19th century walnut armoires to an oak armoire with a marble inlay, your choices are limitless. 

Some pieces feature material beyond solid wood, with additions such as lacquers or a beveled mirror. 

A versatile piece of storage furniture, you could use an armoire wardrobe to store linen as a dresser in your bedroom. If you'd like to put one in your dining room or kitchen, then an armoire can be used as a cabinet to store dishes. We also have customers who add them as decoration in their living room to serve the purpose of a storage cabinet.
