Armoires & Wardrobes
A high-quality and attractive vintage wardrobe closet is probably the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom other than the bed! Whether you are looking for French antique wardrobe armoires or a beautifully crafted modern piece, we have a wide range to suit your style.
We important French antique wardrobe armoires directly from France and sometimes from other European countries. Some of the most popular styles from France are the classic Brittany armoires, heavily carved with figures of merry French country folk in rural settings. Often the carved scenes show a festive celebration with wine and beer, or people relaxing under a windmill or a tree. Ship wheels are also typical of the Brittany style, reflecting the maritime heritage of the Brittany region of France.
Another popular and very pretty style is French Normandy style, which often features carved baskets of flowers and charming carved birds. These antiques look delightful in a French Country style bedroom, as do our reproduction French Country armoires from furniture companies such as French Heritage.
We also import antique wardrobe closets from China. Obviously antique furniture is unique so our stock varies at any time. But you might often find antique Chinese wardrobes in our online gallery from the Late Qing Dynasty period, and these pieces are usually carved with symbols such as lotus, chrysanthemum, peony, geometric patterns, scrolling clouds and the Buddha’s footprint. These symbols have individual meanings for good fortune or health and long life. Ask us to explain the meanings of the symbols!
Contemporary options often have a sleek and glamorous look, for example with mirrored cabinets and glossy polished nickel hardware. These are perfect for your Hollywood Regency or Art Deco bedroom.
Depending on whether you choose a newly-crafted or antique and vintage wardrobe closet, you will find features including mirrored doors, mirrors on the inside of doors, adjustable shelves and removable shirt hangers. Sometimes they have a drawer too, which is always useful for blanket storage.
