Biedermeier table, South German 1820
This Biedermeier table has a beautiful walnut veneer. It is a classic example of an early Biedermeier piece. The central column stands on a tripod base. It could be used as a center table or could also perfectly serve as a dining table for 4-6 chairs.
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.
