Different Eras of Antique Furniture
Georgian Furniture – Georgian antique furniture is from a period between 1714 and 1820, when King George’s ruled England. They focused on simplicity but used quality woods including mahogany and oak. Handcrafted and high quality.
Regency Furniture – furniture known as “Regency” is from a small period between 1800 and 1830 when Prince George of Wales was Regent. It’s inspiration comes from old empire styles of Rome, Egypt and Greece.
Victorian Furniture – from the era when Queen Victoria was on the throne, between 1837 to 1901. An increase in British wealth caused a huge increase in furniture production. This style is very popular today.
Edwardian Furniture – this style came about when King Edward VII ruled Britain, between 1901 to 1911. A lot of the designs in this period used ideas from older periods. Quality was still high on the agenda thanks to the use of woods such as mahogany, walnut and oak.
