Queen Anne

The Queen Anne period is always associated with Walnut furniture and some of the finest surviving examples date from her time. The cabriole leg was the most important introduction of the period with cabinet makers replacing the straight, turned legs with more graceful, curving ones. They were often carved with a shell on the fat curved knee. Surfaces were mostly plain so that the carvings would be the focal point, with every effort being made to show off the grain of walnut veneers to the best advantage on pieces of simple outline. Mirrors became plentiful and of smaller size, and upholstery with both silks and needlework became increasingly popular.
