This is a must have table for all Biedermeier lovers. The walnut root veneer of this extraordinary table forms a floral design on the top. Additionally the classic foot with its love for details adds to the prestigious character.
It represents the typical features of the Biedermeier style.
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.
As a result, authoritarian governments rose to power in multiple countries in the proceeding decades.
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.
Biedermeier cabinetmakers used light, native woods and avoided the use of metal ornamentation. Surfaces were modulated with natural grains, knotholes, or ebonized accents for contrast.
During the Biedermeier period the center table became the family table, around which chairs were set for evening activities.
