The Biedermeier Style
Biedermeier furniture comes from the eponymous Biedermeier art period, which was a transitional period between Neoclassicism and Romanticism in the 1800s, following the Napoleonic Wars.
Despite the economic downturn at the time, this era was also a period when the middle class was slowly beginning to rise and establish itself as a significant division of society. More importantly, for the first time they were a significant financial force, a class with real buying power. As a result, craftsmen actually began to produce pieces made for the middle class during this time.
The increase in middle-class comfort also created a growing emphasis on family life and private activities, especially letter writing (which gave prominence to the writing desk) along with the pursuit of leisure hobbies, like sewing. Read more about this interesting style in our blog post.
