An armoire furniture is a versatile furniture piece. Armoire furniture has been around for several hundreds of years and was generally used in the bedroom of households that could afford this luxury. This type of furniture was used mainly by more affluent people who could easily pay for expensive pieces for the home that usually required a lot of expert craftmanship to produce and that required the best of solid oak wood material. An armoire furniture is a tall cupboard with shelving, which stands alone as opposed to being built into the wall, making it easy to reposition when redecorating. If a cupboard has no shelving but contains a rod for hanging long items of clothing, it is more likely to be called a wardrobe. Armoires might be used to hold plates and cups, non-perishable food items – in which case it might also be called a pantry – or clothing folded to lie flat.
