Armoire Wardrobe you decide?

13 July 2017

Is it Armoire Wardrobe or neither? A wardrobe and an armoire are usually very similar pieces of furniture, and telling the difference can sometimes be a matter of opinion or favoured terminology rather than some particular characteristic or feature.

In most cases, an armoire is actually a type of wardrobe. It’s usually a bit bigger and may be more ornate, and it also generally has shelves in addition to hanging rails. Wardrobes are often designed more with hanging clothes in mind, though there can be exceptions. Armoires are usually a bit more flexible, too, at least when it comes to what they can be used for. Although clothing storage may be the intended purpose, people can and often do use these pieces to house all sorts of things, including televisions and electronic equipment.

Armoire Wardrobe

Armoire Wardrobe….The term “armoire” means “cupboard” in French. Like a wardrobe, an armoire typically is built as a tall cabinet with two doors and a long rod for hanging clothing. It might contain shelving, and it usually features much more ornate designs. These pieces tend to be bigger and bulkier, too, and are often incorporated within the décor of the room. In other words, they’re more than just functional; in most cases they’re also stylistic. Centuries ago, armoires were primarily used to store weapons and armor, which may explain why they’re normally bigger and heavier.

Wardrobes are almost always used for storing clothing and accessories, and they are usually intended to serve as external closets. Rooms without closets or with insufficient closet space often include a wardrobe to give more flexibility. It’s not uncommon to find mirrors affixed on the inside of the doors, along with small shelves for accessories and basic toiletries. In this way, the piece can serve as something of a prepping station to help people get ready.

A selection of some of our Wardrobes

Our Louis Philippe bedroom range is one of our most popular. To reflect this we have mahogany wardrobes available in both a two door and three door configuration. Our Triple Mahogany Wardrobe is the best choice for customers that need a lot of space! They are available in both an antique white paint finish and a wax polish.

If extra storage is a must our lovely mahogany Sleigh style Wardrobes are a great choice. They come with either two drawers bellow the doors or four. Combining both hanging and folding storage for your clothes and accessories. They feature panelled detailing on the doors and sides. The drawers are finished with brass swan handles and the doors with brass drop handles. As before they come in a choice of antique white or wax polish for the overall finish.

The Traditional Solid Mahogany Bureau

16 June 2017

Long before the invention of the Internet, telephones and fax, the main means of communication was the written word; therefore, appropriate writing surfaces were required. Here at Lock, Stock and Barrel we have our very own Solid Mahogany Bureau for those of you who still like the traditional form of communication.

History of Bureau

Traditionally a dark red fabric was draped over the top of a desk, in Latin the word for red is ‘burrus’, and from this the French derived the word bureau. The bureau evolved in the late 17th C from portable boxes with sloping lids that were used as a writing surface. Made during the William and Mary period, the bureau had added space and storage from previous desks. By the 18th C the bureau had incorporated a desk with a chest of drawers. The design of antique bureaus allowed for the development of pigeonholes, inkwells, slots and secret drawers.

During the Elizabethan and Jacobean period the literate were still a minority so there were not as many antique bureaus in circulation from this period. Georgian bureaus tend to be larger in size with Edwardian and 19th C ladies writing bureaus being a more delicate, attractive piece.

Mahogany Four Poster Beds

12 June 2017

Here at Lock, Stock and Barrel we have a wide range of solid Mahogany four poster beds including traditional canopy beds, half testers and Tudor beds. 


The four-poster bed has a very long history and records show that the four-poster bed was in existence in the late C14th and early C15th. It was undeniably very symbolic of status and was customary for royalty and noblemen to own a four-poster bed and anyone who had one was seen as being very successful indeed.

The origins of the four-poster bed are unknown. It is, however, thought to have derived in Austria before arriving in England where it soon became a part of the British aristocracy. Their members naturally fell for its uniqueness and stately style.

Mahogany Four Poster Beds

Our four poster beds are handcrafted using traditional techniques and they have intricate hand carved detailing.  Available with either a traditional wax polish or antique white paint finish (other finishes are available – see our bespoke section for more information).

When ordering your gorgeous new bed why not treat yourself to a new mattress and have it delivered at the same time. We offer a selection of high quality mattresses to compliment our range of beds.
