Interior Design Furniture History
Some clients come to me with pictures of their favurite furniture style. While some have alot of information of the furniture history others are clueless as to what furniture style they would prefer. I have tried to highlight the individual furniture history with some of the main points for you so that it is very easy to pick the style when shopping for furniture.
The history of furniture is extensive, this area of the website covers the Evolution of English Period Furniture, including Tudor Gothic,Elizabethan, Jacobean, Commonwealth, Restoration, William & Mary, Queen Anne, Georgian, Chippendale, Regency, Hepplewhite, Adam,Sheraton, and Victorian as well as French Period Furniture of Louis 14th, Louis 15th and Louis 16th periods.
Furniture Style was dictated by the ruling monarch of the country and the conditions of the era and availability of construction materials and tools to work with.
It was also influenced by the knowledge of the designers or craftsmen, overseas trade or incentives and the economic conditions of the country.
Furniture history is often classed by the reigning monarchs for example Queen Anne, Victorian, William & Mary.
Later furniture history was also classed by the major influence of designers like Robert Adam, Thomas Chippendale and George Hepplewhite.
