Wardrobes (also known as Armoires in French terms) were invented many years ago as somewhere to store clothing and accessories. The definition of a wardrobe is a standing closet for storing clothes etc that contained shelving and cupboards. The earliest wardrobes were actually more like chests that were often taken on long journeys by affluent people so that they had their full regalia with them – it was a great sign of wealth to have many items of clothing in the early days of history!
As the wardrobe evolved throughout the years, a hanging space was introduced in the hope that clothing could be kept relatively crease free. Wardrobes have often been used in the writing of books and films as an enchanted space – the most popular being C.S.Lewis's book 'The lion, the witch and the wardrobe' - a story that millions of people remember from childhood!
Wardrobes are generally made from wood as it has very sturdy properties but can be crafted in many different ways. In earlier history, wardrobes were known to be made from expensive woods such as mahogany and oak and often included ornate wood carvings to add to their majesticness! Nowadays, you can still buy mahogany and oak wardrobes but other cheaper woods are also now used to make this amazing piece of furniture. Pine wardrobes are very popular in particular!
