The Adam Style

  1. and J. Adams were architects, and the furniture designed for their houses, while very similar to Heppelwbite and Sheraton, was more a classic style based on a study of antique detail found in the buried cities of Pompeii and Her-culaneum.
  2. introduced a kind of composition ornament that was applied to the wood. Most of their decorations were in low relief, either composition or carved. They also used inlay, painting and guilding. Legs of chairs, tables, etc., were usually square, fluted and tapering. Chimney pieces show some of their finest work. Some of the Adams designs were taken to America during the Colonial days and form the basis of what is now known as Adams' Colonial.

Characteristic details of the style are : Ram's-heads, urns, rosettes, festoons, classical moulding and delicate flurng.
