Enjoy the elegant grace of Queen Anne furniture

by Tom Grimes

Queen Anne furniture has been a staple of the interior decorating world since it first arrived in the 1700s. As the name would suggest, its style is formal, almost royal in stature, with smooth and gentle curves and a cabriole leg that terminates in either a pad or drake foot. These pieces are made from dark-hued wood, a timeless palette that has endured for hundreds of years.

Those looking to bring a sense of royalty to their living or dining room will love Amish made furniture in this style. The collection of Queen Anne furniture feature ample proportions and an ornate design that will complement any room with ease.

Individuals with home offices may enjoy a writing desk in this style. It brings an understated dignity to any study, featuring three simple dovetailed drawers and a concise aesthetic that isn't overly ornate or unnecessarily large.

If you throw luncheons often, a Queen Anne buffet will capture the elegance of centuries gone by, and immediately add an opulent grace to your dining room.
