Alluring Victorian Style Furniture
Victorian style furniture refers to 19th-century furniture from the Victorian period. Victorian style furniture typically has intricate carving with curving lines and natural images such as leafy patterns, floral patterns, or animals. The Art Nouveau style, which came later, has similar patterns and decorations, making it trickier to determine if a piece of furniture is Victorian. However, unlike Art Nouveau furniture, Victorian pieces will have angular lines and shapes along with carvings added onto the furniture. Victorian style furniture may be constructed of various materials, though wood is most common. Walnut and mahogany wood were most commonly used during this era. Fabrics used in Victorian items may be jacquard, leather, chenille, or velvet, to name a few.
