Definition: An armoire is a kind of wardrobe or freestanding closet. You can hang your clothes on hangers in an armoire, or put your folded sweaters on its shelves.
It was once less common for houses to be built with closets, and armoires gave people a place to store things out of sight. Armoire is a French word, from the Old French armarie, “cupboard or bookcase,” with its Latin root armarium, “closet for storing implements or tools.”
Beautiful store with great people. I damaged an antique that I had just purchased in Waynesville. I stopped in to see if they sold wood glue. They don't sell wood glue, but the owner offered to repair the cabinet even though his store is not a repair shop. The repair was not something I could do because I didn't have the right glue and it needed clamped. He had it repaired by the next day. It looked so good that I thought he had restained the wood. I was elated! The owner refused to let me pay him and when I insisted, he said to put it in the offering plate at church! So that's what I did and I was blessed, and so were others. A big thank you to Mr.Tim Nichols and the other gentleman who helped carry the cabinet out to my van.
Amazing store with a great selection. I have been there many times, and each time someone offers to help me! The delivery of my furniture went so smoothly and the guys go out of their way to make sure that it is done that way. I would highly recommend them to anyone! :)
