Edwardian Interiors and Furniture. … Fresh and light colours composed most of the interiors in UK in this period. It was the start of a deviation from the formal to informal. Furnitures began being made of bamboo and wicker. They were made in various styles which included baroque, rococo and empire.
Georgian pieces are likely to use Oak and Mahogany. Mahogany characteristically is a hardwood, dark reddish-brown in colour which will darken over time and polishes to a reddish sheen.
How do I identify my furniture?
Look carefully at the bottom, sides, and back of the drawer; if the wood shows nicks or cuts, it was probably cut with a plane, a spokeshave, or a drawknife. Straight saw marks also indicate an old piece. If the wood shows circular or arc-shaped marks, it was cut by a circular saw, not in use until about 1860.
Queen Anne furniture
Queen Anne style has Curved lines, in the feet, legs, arms, crest rails, and pediments, along with minimal ornament (often in a shell shape)
Victorian furniture was usually made from Walnut for smaller pieces such as small tables and Mahogany for large pieces such as wardrobes, dining tables and bookcases. Sometimes these pieces featured Flame Mahogany veneers and used walnut and rosewood for decoration of for example, table tops.
Chairs were more curved in design and were usually 3 main styles: the Spoon back arm chair with a buttoned or plain upholstered back rest with scrolled arms and toes, with carved legs; the nursing chair with the same style of backrest but much lower and without arms; and the balloon back chair used around a dining room table with an open circular backrest, with just the base upholstered and an open back.
Antique walnut chairs
Chests of Drawers were usually made of mahogany (the upmarket version) and pine (more economical) and bow fronted (out swept curving front) or were simple square fronted chests with rounded corners and edges. The feet were either raised – upon shaped block feet or turned bun feet, and were fitted with turned ?knob? drawer pulls. As brass decorative handles were commonly used in the Georgian period, if these handles are found on a chest of drawers then they have either been added later or the chest is not Victorian.
Victorian furniture is characterized by ornate carvings, dark woods, and heavy luxurious fabrics. Victorian furniture is traditionally made from mahogany, rosewood, or walnut, sometimes painted or gilded. Intricate carvings of natural images such as flowers, leaves, curling vines, ribbons, and bows adorned the pieces.
Washstands would be made from Oak or Pine
Console and Hall tables and writing desks used Mahogany
Centre tables and games tables were typically finished in Walnut, Rosewood or Amboyna
Often Victorian tables had a very decorative carved base.
Why buy Victorian furniture
Nowadays Victorian antique furniture is similarly priced to flimsy throwaway Ikea equivalents so there isn?t a better time to invest in this type of furniture. It is not only more beautiful, but it also holds it?s value or may even be worth more in 10 years than you paid for it.
Antiques are the ultimate ecofriendly product with the possibility of recycling them an infinite number of times. Victorian antiques have become a bargain over the last 20 years because items can be too bulky for a small house, and they aren?t from an era made trendy by the high street (such as 1950s furniture). Victorian antiques are still in good supply.
Victorian furniture is often better made than older equivalents so don?t? be snobby about the period. Older isn?t always better.
