Armoires / Cupboards
An armoire (pronounced ärm-ˈwär) is a tall, freestanding cabinet with doors that conceal shelves, hanging space and drawers. This piece of furniture in its present form was devised by the French in the 17th century, and the name might have come from the Latin word “armorium,” which was a chest for storing armor. Armoires also became part of the evolving home office. Their generous proportions and ample storage space helped hide away computers, monitors and files when not in use, making home offices relatively clutter-free and oh so beautiful.
Armoires have been used to provide decorative accents or focal points in rooms. Its very size makes an armoire hard to miss and depending on its colour and style; can give any room character. You can buy them for that reason alone, and all the extra storage space is a bonus.
