the armoire - is it still a thing?

I remember years ago how the armoire was the piece of furniture to have. Not just my memories of the 80s with the knotty pine rendition of the day, but from the early part of the 20th century… and from even well well before then too! Has it gone away? Do people now prefer hidden built-ins, walk-in closets with all the bells and whistles, and simple dressers over these once very sought after pieces?

Check out these photos of some really exquisite armoires and tell me, would you want one in your home again perhaps?
