Starbrick checks out his furniture
He LOVES his armoire. Great for storing his special undies AND for hide and seek!!
Armoire--A standing closet used for storing clothes. The earliest armoire/wardrobe was a chest, and it was not until some degree of luxury was attained in regal palaces and castles of powerful nobles that separate accommodation was provided for the sumptuous apparel of the great. The name of wardrobe was then given to the room in which the wall-space was filled with cupboards and lockers, the drawers being a comparatively modern invention. From these cupboards and lockers the modern wardrobe, with its hanging spaces, sliding shelves and drawers evolved slowly.
