Biedermeier chest of drawers

This small Biedermeier chest of drawers has an interesting architectural structure and a characteristic appearance thanks to the beautifully grained ash veneer.

Biedermeier refers to a style of design and culture that was popular in Central Europe, especially in Germany and Austria, from around 1815 to 1848. The term derives from the name of a fictional character, Gottlieb Biedermeier, who appeared in a series of humorous poems and stories published in a Munich newspaper in the 1850s.

The Biedermeier style was characterized by simplicity, elegance, and a focus on the domestic sphere. Furniture and decorative objects were often made from natural materials such as wood and cherrywood.

Biedermeier chests are characterized by a simple, elegant aesthetic that is combined with fine details and clear design. The furniture pieces are often designed with clean lines and simple forms and usually have no carvings or decorations.

Overall, Biedermeier chests have a timeless beauty and are still highly sought after by furniture enthusiasts and collectors today.

To celebrate the Biedermeier times we have this absolutely stunning Painting of a child.
