Biedermeier chests of drawers

This chests of drawers made of cherry wood were made around 1820. The Biedermeier style was an art and design movement that was popular primarily in German-speaking countries during the Biedermeier period (ca. 1815-1848).

Biedermeier chests were very popular during this time and were often made with high quality craftsmanship. Cherry wood was often used for making furniture because it has a warm color and beautiful grain. It is a hardwood and is good for furniture making.

The Biedermeier style

This typical three-drawer Biedermeier chest of drawers made of cherry wood from around 1820 has three drawers that are arranged one above the other in a symmetrical arrangement. The top drawer is in front. The drawer fronts have a veneer appearance without carvings, inlays or other decorative elements. Only the key plates are inlaid in a diamond shape in ebonized pearwood.

The style of the Biedermeier chest of drawers is characterized by clear lines, simple shapes and subtle decoration. The furniture should be functional and aesthetically pleasing at the same time. Much Biedermeier furniture reflected bourgeois taste and the desire for living comfort.
