1. The ChairA silver chair that binds and curses princes, a throne signifying authority and the hero's ascension to his destiny, a chair next to a wall that spins to reveal a hidden passage. Chairs are very useful.
2. The ChestI couldn't think of a particular fantasy story with a cool chest (though I'm sure they're there), but I've always associated chests with mystery. A place to find old, folded clothes (magical or just connecting the heroine to her lookalike great-great grandmother and, ultimately, her destiny or a lost fortune), dusty books with dangerous secrets, maps to strange places, treasure, as well as moth balls. These also might be considered the forerunners to Mary Poppins's carpet bag and Newt Scamander's infamous suitcase.
3. The WardrobeWho knows what might be in a wardrobe? Another world, perhaps?
