Victorian Style Furniture for Everyone
Victorian style furniture is known for having taken elements of design from other periods and used them to create a new style that is very beautiful and elegant and often ornate. The Victorian period borrowed from the designs and styles of many other periods, such as The Georgian period furniture, Regency furniture, even Jacobean furniture and Queen Anne furniture. All these styles can be found amalgamated into the opulent Victorian style. Apart from this amalgamation, there was a new and unique design element in Victorian times. Especially around the time of the Great Exhibition of 1851.
This was probably the peak period for Victorian Furniture design. Many great firms went all out to impress the upper & middle class attendees of this exhibition. There were so many fine and now famous “Exhibition” pieces produced and those wonderful works of art increased the interest in this new and wonderful design.
The Victorian period was the longest Reign of any Monarch. It spanned nearly 64 years between 1837 through 1901. As one can imagine, furniture trends during such a length of time came and went. The underlying style remained but with many updates and variations. There were subtle changes such as table and Victorian dining room chairs legs transitioning from turned reeded legs to fluted legs, then hexagonal legs. More soft upholstered furniture began to make an appearance in the Victorian living room. Towards the latter part of the century the curvaceous lines began to give way to squarer lines tending towards the next Edwardian period.
There were also several big period revivals during the long reign of Queen Victoria. We have already mentioned the Jacobean period furniture, Georgian furniture and Regency furniture, these all had big revival towards the later part of the 19th Century but it is still classified as Queen Victoria Style Furniture. There was also quite a strong Gothic Furniture revival. But, also the big Arts & Craft movement towards “Art Nouveau” style had a significant influence. This modern and very beautiful Art Nouveau furniture, glassware, porcelain, bronze statuary and more, is often overlooked as actually being Victorian furniture. Victorian style interior design encompassed practically every style of furniture that had been produced over a span of more than 4-500 years!
There are many residential properties in Australia that have Victorian era heritage that gives them a very special historical charm. Many of these properties have been well maintained to retain their appearance or they have more recently been renovated to faithfully reproduce the look of the time. Therefore, it makes a great deal of sense to continue the true theme throughout the home and adhere to the period with Victorian style furniture throughout.
