Art Nouveau Walnut Sideboard c.1900
The Edwardian period is identified with the reign of King Edward VII of England, son of Queen Victoria. King Edward succeeded to the throne in 1901. He died in 1910.
The Victorian period had been marked by dark, jewel-toned colors and heavy furnishings. Interiors were filled with velvets and jacquard fabrics, ornately carved furniture and layered window treatments.
The art nouveau influence is evident in the design of Edwardian furniture.
Edwardian furniture was also influenced by Neoclassical and Art Deco designs.
The Edwardian period is also one of revivalism, what may be termed in contemporary times as eclectic.
Edwardian furniture did away with most carving, replacing it with grape leaf and feminine form engraving.
The primary influences for this period were the art deco and Neoclassical artisans.
The more popular furniture piece that was invented during this era was the wing chair.
A popular material that was introduced during the Edwardian period is
. The airiness was a relief from the heavy Victorian style. An Edwardian-style wicker chair will have a broad, arched back and curled arms. The seat will have a brightly colored cushion with a bold print. The broad back and curled arms is a common trait in Edwardian furniture, often seen in couches and wing-back chairs of the period.
