Coffee table in Queen Anne style
During the times of Queen Anne in the English art appeared a new decorative style, which was called by her name.
This period was also called “the walnut era”. Why? – There is a simple explanation to this phenomenon. The matter is that material was used almost exclusively for the furniture manufacture. It replaced oak, which, however, was still used for decoration.
A distinctive feature of the coffee table in the Queen Anne style is the using of curved legs in the double bend – the upper part is salient and bottom is concave.Every leg ends by base or in the form of a rounded claw.
After 1710 an improved design and wood processing created even greater refinement of the silhouette. For example, a chair made in the style Queen Anne can be recorgized according to its back, which is concave to match the spine curvature.
Incrustation, mosaic, lacquering were masterfully used in the design of decorative furniture Queen Anne. Many years ago a coffee table in Queen Anee style was extremely popular mostly among the representatives of the upper class in the British colonies in North America
