 During the period of Queen Victoria’s reign (1837 to 1901), designers used and modified many ideas but prolifically from the Gothic and Rococo revival styles. Eastern influences were frequently found in Victorian era furniture, as the 19th Century saw the British Empire reach it's peak and extend it's reach across the world. Aesthetic style furniture and art gained popularity in latter part of the 1800s. The Arts and Crafts movement driven by William Morris with it's traditional handcrafted style was an integral part of the era and one of the most sought after Victorian style furniture. These design influences produced a rich, eclectic mix of styles. The coiled spring was patented for upholstery use by Samuel Pratt in 1828, meaning seats became deeper and chair legs became shorter. Marble top tables became popular. 

When choosing furniture for your home and interiors, whichever room you are furnishing, the basic requirements are always the same. It must be practical, stylish, affordable and have longevity. With the mass production and availability of modern furniture, it can be easy to overlook other options. But if you’re looking for quality furniture that has stood the test of time, 19th century antique furniture is a beautiful, elegant choice to furnish your interior space. Victorian furniture was built to last, with exceptional workmanship using quality woods such as mahogany, burr walnut and oak.
