Armoire Furniture: Several Styles, One Central Theme

Armoire furniture can be used in the living room, bedroom, study or anywhere else one decides to add a touch of sophistication and elegance to a room.

They come in many styles and colors, so whether one prefers a traditional style or a modern one, it is possible to find just the right armoire to complete the home decor.

For instance, one may find a jewelry armoire to store and organize all kinds of jewelry pieces such as necklaces, earrings, rings, bracelets, watches, cuff links and any other keepsake he or she holds dear. Jewelry armoires may be freestanding on the floor or wall mounted structures. Many also include mirrors on the outside and/or the inside, so one can look himself or herself over when accessorizing. They also tend to be made of beautiful wood such as cherry, mahogany or oak.

Armoire Wardrobe

An armoire is probably most commonly used as a wardrobe closet. The hanging space makes it ideal for storing clothing items that should not be folded while drawers can store folded and other items. Armoire wardrobes are usually freestanding, making them somewhat portable.  Older wooden or antique styles of these are made of those heavier woods mentioned above and make moving even an empty one a challenge.  Newer portable wardrobes have wheels and are made of more lightweight materials and fabrics.  Most of the more traditional armoires made of wood can suit any type of bedroom decor or theme.
