Country French Armoires

Rural artisans usually mimicked the fashions emanating from the court or the major metropolitan areas, but ultimately evolved into distinctive styles that make choosing an antique armoire so enjoyable. Usually crafted from indigenous woods, antique armoires range from very simple and rustic tograndiose and heavily embellished. An antique Country French armoire was usually the most prized possession of a family back in the day, and to some extent, it still remains so. View our huge collection of antique furniture here.
