Ming Wardrobe, Light Elm
The addition of a hanging rail is what makes our light elm wardrobe different to the cabinets that the design is based on, this was something unfamiliar to Ming and Qing Dynasty Chinese who would always fold their clothes for storage inside cabinets and chests. This solid, simply styled wardrobe is a reproduction of the thick framed 'square cornered' cabinets that were commonly made in Beijing and other parts of northern China. We have also included three removable shelves inside, giving you the option to use it as a more general cupboard if needed. The brass circular hardware on the doors adds simple decoration to the wardrobe's otherwise pure design and gives it a recognisably oriental feel. Due to its size and weight, the wardrobe comes in two sections (each 50 x 60 x 200cm) that easily slot together and are secured with hidden screws on the inside.
