Biedermeier Wardrobe walnut, Germany 1820.
The outside of this classic Biedermeier wardrobe has beautiful mirrored walnut veneer panels on the doors and sides in a cherry wood frame. Additionally, it has ebonized columns and details.
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.
Domineering governments discouraged political activism, which led people to create comfort in their own lives.
Subdued elegance and charming grace that connect elements of the Empire and Directoire periods characterize this style.
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.
