Antique Chest of Drawers, Biedermeier Period 1820.
This unique 1820’s antique Biedermeier chest of drawers stands out for its beautiful mirrored walnut veneer. The chest has four spacious drawers and is the ideal piece for a spacious entry way or an elegant bedroom. I could also see it as an eye catcher adding an individual touch to an eclectic living room design.
The Biedermeier Period lasted from 1815 to 1848 after the end of the Napoleonic Wars.
It was a period of transition in Northern and Central Europe, especially in Germany and Austria.
After decades of war, Europeans wanted peace, and so reform movements and liberal ideas took a backseat.
In Germany and Austria, a prospering middle class that was a permanent part of an industrialized, urban nation was still relatively new.
Despite their growing affluence, many middle-class citizens felt ambiguous about their standing and the future.
The history of Biedermeier furniture is also the beginning of interior design for the ordinary home.
And although it’s been centuries since this style emerged, it remains as timeless and versatile as ever.
