Antique Georgian Chairs are from the periods of 1714 to 1830 and this was the first time the chair development was done on a larger scale as dining was a big part of life during the Georgian period. The early Georgian period mainly used the earlier design of the Queen Anne style with the usual Ball and Claw foot on a cabriole leg, constructed in a solid walnut. From the mid to late Georgian period, this is when Mahogany was used as the choice of wood as cabinet makers preferred the durability and ease of carving. This is when renowned cabinet makers from Hepplewhite, Sheraton to Chippendale created their own designs and sold them to woodworkers throughout country, so these chair designs were copied and sold on a larger scale than ever before. Comfort was now placed into the designs with nicely upholstered seats, scrolled arms and lovely little decorations like inlays and fine carvings. This period also includes Regency chairs with out-swept sabre legs and occasionally decorative brass inlay. The Georgian period, really did produce love lovely quality antique chair designs and is probably one of the most sought after and collected periods.
