Biedermeier Antique Table Desk
This elegant Biedermeier antique table desk or salon table is a beautiful example of the artistic flexibilities of the Austrian Biedermeier Style. With an enchanting build and Romantic feet, it’s a table to dream about. Place it in your living room, for example, for a wonderful piece of physical escapism.
With a gorgeous walnut veneer and polished finish, this table certainly stands out from the crowd. Its aesthetic is perhaps best described as youthful, combining the free, organic geometry of the much later Art Nouveau period with the wood-centered craftsmanship of Biedermeier.
Consider this Biedermeier table an exemplar of its period. At the turn of the 19th century, when European society began a radical transformation with the Industrial Revolution, a middle-class with artisan tastes began to emerge. Biedermeier is the style of that moment, a rejection of the lavish Baroque, and later Neoclassicism, of the 18th century. Its primary philosophy is to showcase the quality of its materials.
The wood itself certainly provides all lavish qualities to this antique table desk. That makes it distinctly Biedermeier – no gold or other rich materials, for instance, are required to make this piece look and feel like a treasure.
