Antique Edwardian Chairs are from the period of 1901 to 1910 when King Edward was on the throne in the United Kingdom. Contrary to popular myth, top quality timbers were used in their construction from solid Mahogany, Oak, Satinwood and Walnut, although they were more heavily reproduced they are still extremely good quality. It was the height of fashion to copy earlier designs such as Chippendale and Hepplewhite but using their own more comfortable and delicate style. As machines were now used in their construction, traditionalist cabinet makers created their own movements from the french Art Nouveau designs to the hand built Arts and Crafts, more solid and done by skilled chair makers by hand. Upholstery was high in demand along with larger dining chair sets to accompany full dining room suites, all matching with decorative carving details and upholstered seats. Edwardian antique chairs can be a good choice to add to your collection as most are solid enough for everyday use, there is more of a selection from this period and they are more reasonably priced compared to the original period chairs. Here at Antiques World, we always have a good collection of antique Edwardian chairs to buy. Have a look below at our lovely examples available for sale.
