French Armoires/WardrobesWhether opting for a one, two or even a three door French wardrobe or ‘armoire,’ it is important to realise that this solid, durable and rather exotic piece of bedroom furniture is not simply somewhere to store clothing, shoes or other accessories such as belts and scarves. No, this beautiful piece of hand-carved mahogany French furniture should, along with the bed, provide the design basis on which the remainder of the room’s furniture and accessories should be based. Hosting the full-length mirror, the imposing French wardrobe will be undoubtedly be confronted and scrutinised on a regular basis by all those who enter the bedroom and can’t resist a quick peek. That’s why most French wardrobes, based on authentic antique models, come with intricately carved detail and the knowledge they will forever be admired. And rightly so. The French Noir black painted four door Armoire certainly would not look out of place on a 1920 or even 1950s French film set – or a British or American one for that matter. And this is where the appeal of French furniture lies. It is universal, practically timeless and adds a certain sophistication to a room that far too many wardrobes these days lack. All French wardrobes tend to come with a hanging rail and, in many cases, adjustable shelving. Another stunning look to any bedroom wardrobe is the French Gold Leaf collection where the mahogany based furniture is hand finished in genuine gold leaf then finished with an antique effect to provide an aged and authentic appearance.
