General Considerations: You need to keep in mind that an armoire is a tall piece of furniture that traditionally fills the same sort of role as a closet. Often armoires have one large chamber in which clothing is hung, usually on a cross bar running across the top. If you are going to decorate with armoires, you thus need to put it in an area where there is reasonable floor to ceiling height-enough to fit the piece as well as possibly put items on top.
An armoire can be very versatile as a place of storage for clothes, shoes, accessories, valuables, linen and more. Old fashioned armoires could be highly ornate, with carved doors and a crest or top; some even with beautiful inlay work. Some of these could be really massive - old fashioned armoires were built on the eight small men method - this means that a good sized double door armoire could fit 8 small men.
An armoire pronounced arm-waar is a free standing, moveable cupboard or a closet that may have several shelves, drawers, a hanging rod, hanging pegs and perhaps a locker or two as well. Many armoires may be fitted with a full length mirror on the outside, adding to its utility. Typically it would be made from oak or walnut wood; mahogany or satinwood.
