If there’s one coastal home decor style that won’t be going out of taste anytime soon, it is old world elegance. This style is really about showcasing graciousness and distinguished taste. There may be no single piece for your home that displays timeless elegance better than an armoire.
The history of the armoire is an interesting one. Designed in 13th century France, the armoire was originally used to store armor. Over the following centuries, its use and popularity spread to Spain, England, and eventually North America. As closets were rare until the late 19th century, it was common for homes to have several armoires to store their linens, clothes, and other household goods.
You likely have ample closet space in your home today, but an armoire still adds a regal touch to any room.
