English mahogany wardrobes developed from the Chest
In past days, people stored their clothes in a chest where they just had to lay unorganized. In the 15th century the chest developed into a wardrobe and thus became more spacious. It grew taller and larger and people began to pigeonhole and divide the spacious interior. Doors in the front were added, some even with mirrors, and they added shelves, hanging rails, hooks and even drawers. So did English mahogany wardrobes. English mahogany wardrobes are now particularly famous and sought-after and they exist in many different styles and variations. English mahogany wardrobes can appear as narrow one-door versions and as large examples with four or five doors and extra drawers and gables.
