An architectural and decorative style popular in America during the early nineteenth century, featuring delicate ornamentation, usually of swags and urns, and symmetrically arranged rooms.
The style period from 1790-1830. Specific to American furniture and architecture. Derived from Hepplewhite and Sheraton and, towards the end of the period, from French empire.
American furniture style following the American Revolution and running roughly through the early 1800s. Incorporates the neoclassical influences of Sheraton and Hepplewhite including refined lines, tapered legs and contrasting veneers and inlays. One of the popular Federal-style furniture makers was Duncan Phyfe. Brass feet and brass-ring drawer pulls are common on large storage pieces; game tables are very popular accents.
