What's in the Wardrobe

"Wardrobes with their shelves, desks with their drawers, and chests with their false bottoms are veritable organs of the secret psychological life....

Every poet of furniture— even if he be a poet in a garret, and therefore has no furniture— knows that the inner space of an old wardrobe is deep. A wardrobe’s inner space is also intimate space, space that is not open to just anybody."

--  Gaston Bachelard, The Poetics of Space.
