A wardrobe, often known as an armoire, is a standing closet that is used to store clothes. The first wardrobe was a chest, and it wasn’t until regal palaces and powerful nobles’ castles reached a certain level of grandeur that separate storage for the great’s clothing was supplied.

The term “wardrobe” was then used to a room with closets and lockers lining the walls, with the drawer being a more recent creation. The contemporary wardrobe, with its hanging places, sliding shelves, and drawers, evolved gradually from these cabinets and lockers.

Throughout the modifications in the enclosure’s shape over time, it mostly remained its original role as a location to store a king’s robe. Over consecutive centuries, the term has come to be known as an autonomous store for, among other things, maintaining valuable assets for a king, such as gold, which was prominent during King Edward I’s reign.

It’s also a basic patio with clothing draped from metal bars or tucked into utility racks that span the length of the patio. The triple partitioning of the modern wardrobe differs from that of the historical one in one respect: there are two linear compartments on either side with shelves, as well as a middle space with hanging pegs and drawers, the latter being a modern addition, and a clothes press in the higher central space on level with a person’s chest.

The wardrobe, in its mobile form as an oak “hanging cabinet,” comes from the early 17th century in the United States. Because English forests were over-harvested or reserved for the Navy at the time, it was an early export commodity from America to England. As a result, the object was occasionally referred to as an oakley.


Such pieces, massive and cumbrous in form but often with well-carved fronts, were produced in moderate numbers for probably a hundred years before the gradual decline in the use of oak for cabinet-making caused a shift in fashion in favor of the more abundant American walnut. (With repeated deforestation occurrences, the virgin American forests became Oak, then Maple.)

Walnut replaced oak as the most popular furniture wood, although walnut hanging wardrobes appear to have been unusual, despite the prevalence of clothing presses with drawers and sliding trays.

The wardrobe began to evolve into its contemporary design in the nineteenth century, with a hanging cupboard on each side, a press in the upper section of the middle area, and drawers below. Traditionally, mahogany was used, but when satinwood and other formerly uncommon, fine-grained foreign woods became more widely available, numerous beautifully and sometimes wonderfully inlaid wardrobes were created.

Sheraton, Hepplewhite, and their contemporaries attained their effects by artistically using neatly contrasting and highly polished woods where Chippendale and his school had carved.

The central doors, which had previously just covered the top half of the wardrobe, were extended to the floor, covering the drawers as well as the sliding shelves, and were frequently furnished with mirrors.

Custom-fitted wardrobes, which are designed around the size and shape of the room, are a more wealthy choice in the United Kingdom.
