Similiar to an armoir but smaller. A chiffarobe is a free standing wardrobe which usually has a full length mirrored door. Behind the door there's a rod to hang one's clothes, and several drawers on the opposite side of the mirrored door. Chiffarobes were used in the days before homes had closets.
My best dress is hanging in Grandmother's chiffarobe.

from "chiffonier" (dressmaker) and "wardrobe"; a free-standing tall piece of furniture used to hold clothing; includes a rod for hanging clothes and may include several drawers as well; usually two sides.
Her bustle was neatly folded and stored in the chiffarobe.

An old dresser thing that you bust up and use for kindling.
