The Biedermeier style emerged around 1815 in Austria and Germany. Compared to the French Empire style, which had an influence on the early Biedermeier style, it is well known for its more unpretentious design language.
The use of local woods, like cherry or walnut, became fashionable.The beauty of the wood grain had priority. Biedermeier tables often stand out for their beautifully veneered tops.
The withdrawal into private life and the arising of the new middle class promoted this new style.
Needlework was in fashion, and the working and side tables of this time were often used as so called sewing tables.
In today’s homes the sewing table can perfectly stand as a side or end table in a living room next to a sofa, or as an elegant eye catcher in an entry way. The options are versatile.
The side table measures Height: 27.56 in. (70 cm), Width: 26.38 in. (67 cm), Depth: 19.69 in. (50 cm) and is in very good condition. It ships from Germany and includes shipping costs to Boston.
