Knock-Down Wardrobe

A simple and classic ‘Shaker-style’ wardrobe, with panelled doors and sides, traditionally handmade in solid Douglas fir, fitted with hand forged ironmongery.

Designed to easily dismantle or ‘knock-down’ in the same practical way the French conceived their ‘armoires’ in the C18th & C19th and reminiscent of military campaign furniture intended to uphold a degree of home comfort for officers travelling abroad.

The panels are held together simply and securely with beech pegs, which can be removed so that the wardrobe easily dismantles and can be ‘flat-packed’ in order to fit through narrow spaces and up windy stairs with ease and at less expense.

Inside you have the option of adjustable hanging rails or shelves which are constructed in solid wood and supported on wooden slats. The doors are mounted on beautiful blacksmith-made, lift-off hinges, though we can replace these for a concealed hinge if you prefer. The wardrobes pictured are available now fully primed or can be finished in a paint colour of your choice. Also available to order in bespoke sizes.
