Our chic French wardrobes are the very best place to keep your clothes and each and every French wardrobe we have has been lovingly hand-built and finished to give you a very glamorous and stylish way to store your favourite items of clothing.
French wardrobes are one of the most elegant and sophisticated pieces of furniture you can have in a bedroom. Create that boudoir feel with a charming French wardrobe that is both sophisticated and practical, with interior hanging and shelf arrangements included and a mirrored or solid panel finish.
The French call a wardrobe an ‘armoire’ and you’ll see many of our pieces are called armoires as homage to the classic French designs we have been inspired by when creating these pieces. In 18th century France travelling was all the fashion, yet the trend was to take all your furniture with you, which is how these armoires came about. Although often incredibly heavy, the French travelling socialites would have their wardrobes, with the clothes inside them, moved lock, stock and barrel as they travelled.
Nowadays we take a suitcase for our voyages, leaving the wardrobe at home, but we think the functional and debonair looks of the traditional French wardrobe makes be a superb addition to any modern bedroom.
We have a full range of French style wardrobes available for you, including two door and three door ranges, all finished off in a kaleidoscope of colours and techniques, from the bling golds and silvers, to the dark and mysterious blacks and the country styled distressed paint.
The main thing you will need to decide is whether you want your wardrobe to have a mirrored door or not. French style wardrobes didn’t really have mirrors until later on in the 19th century, but we think they are highly practical for modern living, as they double up as the full figure mirror for when you are getting ready, so you can check your full look before heading out. They also have the effect of making the dimensions of a room look bigger and can reflect natural daylight into your bedroom too.
Of course, if you’re a shy and retiring type or you already have a full-length mirror, opt for a fully paneled door version of the French wardrobe of your choice. It also means your wardrobe is a little lighter, making it easy to move.
In terms of build quality, rest assured all our wardrobes are built using high grade hard and soft woods by skilled craftsmen. The French style of clothing wardrobes is very ornate and our mouldings often found on the crest of the wardrobes are all intricately carved to give a unique finishing touch to your piece.Delivery for these French wardrobes is included in the UK as part of the complete package we offer all our clients.
