Colonial furniture has played an integral role in the forming of our nation. As the settlers arrived in America, they brought little furniture with them. What was mentioned in a list of inventories was chairs, chests, tables and bedsteads. These were of English origin. European furniture was still crude and heavy. As prosperity increased, so did the the availability of furniture, and cabinetmakers began to move away from the English tradition of furniture making. Another industry of workers was created- chair makers, joiners, and turners. Around 1740 cabinet makers began to publish books with their own design. Some of the finest furniture ever built was being created by the carvers of wood- Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton. These 18th century craftsmen developed furniture with style and elegance unmatched by other furniture makers.
Colonial Sense will bring you articles covering the Jacobean, William and Mary, Queen Anne, Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Sheraton, and Federal period. However, we will also offer articles covering furniture built in a specific region, for some of this furniture continues to be highly sought out by antique collectors. The values of tea tables, dower chests, highboys, chest of drawers, and secretaries continue to rise yearly. This furniture is revered by artisans who continue to replicate these styles of furniture using traditional methods. Whether you using period or reproduction furniture, the design, grace, and elegance continues to add warmth and beauty to our colonial homes.
