Queen Anne

Spanning most of the first half of the 18th Century, the Queen Anne style was both influential and original, characterized by refined, flowing lines without excessive decoration. In chair and table making, the style spawned an important innovation: the cabriole leg. Queen Anne designs migrated to America after becoming well established in England. The style eventually found a home in Philadelphia, the colonies' most important cabinet-making center. Queen Anne furniture remained popular in America long after it was superceded in England by the early Georgian style.
