Single Biedermeier armchair

Armchairs in the Biedermeier style were very popular between 1815 and 1848. They were an important piece of furniture in the living room and were often used as part of a seating arrangement with other chairs and sofas.

This single armchair from southern Germany was made around 1820. It is made of solid cherry wood, with the frame and backrest veneered in cherry and ebonized pear wood. It has been newly upholstered and covered in striped cotton fabric.

Armchairs in the Biedermeier style were characterized by simple, elegant lines and minimalist decoration. They were often made of high-quality woods such as cherry, mahogany, or walnut, and had padded seats and backrests for added comfort.

The armrests were usually slightly curved outward, and the legs were straight or slightly curved. Many chairs also had decorative details such as carvings or inlays.

Today, Biedermeier-style armchairs are highly sought after and often command high prices in the art market. However, they are also available from furniture manufacturers and retailers who offer modern interpretations of the Biedermeier style.
