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. Early 18th Century antique Georgian chairs were in 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, 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 Britain. Georgian chair designs were copied and sold on a larger scale than ever before. Comfort was now used into their designs for the first time with nicely upholstered seats, scrolled arms and lovely little decorations like inlays and fine carvings. This timeline 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.
