The availability of the finest quality mahogany, burr walnut and birdseye maple to the furniture makers of old makes the choice of an antique wardrobe an easy one. You can’t easily get contemporary furniture in these materials due to their scarcity and high price.
There are some things that a bedroom just has to have. A bed of course is a good start and pretty much essential, but beyond the obvious there are a number of other items that regularly find their way on to our customer’s wish lists. After the bed itself, along with a chest of drawers, a bedside table, and a dressing table, probably the next most desirable item is a wardrobe of some sort.
Our stock of antique wardrobes frequently includes examples from top class major manufacturers and retailers such as Gillows and Harrods.
Antique Wardrobes - Attractive and Functional
An antique dealer’s inventory can often be regarded as falling into two main categories - attractive and decorative or attractive and functional. Sometimes a piece can simply be functional whilst being attractive. Although few people would describe a wardrobe as a decorative item they do add much needed storage and hanging space to your bedroom and, as such, are a regular feature in our inventory.
For a functional & beautiful antique wardrobe please browse our selection regularly as it changes all the time.
As with any other item of antique furniture, please be sure to check the dimensions which are published alongside the description of every item we sell so that you can be certain that your chosen wardrobe will fit comfortably in your bedroom.
Wardrobe Warning - A Word of Caution Concerning Antique Wardrobes
Items listed in this category, probably more than any other, should be carefully chosen to ensure that they fit into the space that you have in mind.
All of our antique wardrobe listings include accurate data regarding size and you are urged to check this carefully before making a purchase.
