Queen Anne Furniture

 developed during, and after the reign of Anne, Queen of Great Britain (1702–1714).


Queen Anne furniture is “somewhat smaller, lighter, and more comfortable than its predecessors,” and examples in common use include “curving shapes, the cabriole legcushioned seats, wing-back chairs, and practical secretary deskbookcase pieces.”[1] Other elements characterizing the style include pad feet and “an emphasis on line and form rather than ornament.”
