Biedermeier Table, South German 1820
This exquisite Biedermeier table is embellished with attractive walnut veneer on top and base. The hexagonal center column stands on a three foot base. The piecrust veneer on the top has a beautiful veneer grain. This is the perfect dining table for 4-6 chairs or you could also use it as a center table in an entry hall or larger living area.
The early 19th-century Biedermeier style marks the transitional period between Neoclassicism and Romanticism.
The “Biedermeier” society, in general, concentrated on the domestic and (at least in public) the non-political.
As a consequence, the emphasis on home life for the growing middle-class meant a blossoming of furniture design and interior decorating.
Biedermeier furniture derives mostly from the austro-hungarian empire and Germany.
Stylistically, it softened the rigidity of the Empire style.
Consequently, the cabinet makers used light, native woods and avoided the use of metal ornamentation.
Throughout the Biedermeier period, clean lines and minimal ornamentation dominated the design.
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.
