Biedermeier extension tables

were a popular type of furniture in the 19th century. They were characterized by their clear and simple design.

Around 1880, Biedermeier extending tables were very popular in France in their second phase. In this period, the tables were often made of high-quality woods such as mahogany, cherry wood or walnut. The table tops were often decorated with fine veneer work and inlays of various woods.

The extension feature allowed the table to be enlarged if necessary, allowing more guests to be seated at it. Some tables even had multiple extensions to create even more space.

Biedermeier Furniture

Since the Biedermeier extending table in cherry is suitable for use without a tablecloth, this color and wood grain are also excellently expressed. Biedermeier dining tables were handmade in the 19th century during the Biedermeier era.

Wood Selection and Manufacturing

Wood Selection: Cherry wood was one of the most commonly used woods for Biedermeier furniture, including dining tables. The wood was valued for its beautiful grain and warm color. Other woods such as birch, walnut, and mahogany were also used. Design and Construction: The tabletops were often made from solid wood boards glued together to create a stable surface. The table legs were typically columnar or slightly tapered, displaying simple yet elegant lines. Joints were carefully crafted to ensure stability and durability. Surface Finishing: The table surface was often stained or treated with a clear polish to highlight the natural beauty of the wood. Some tables might be adorned with inlay or marquetry work.


Some Biedermeier dining tables were extendable to enlarge the tabletop when needed. This was often achieved through the use of leaves or inserts hidden beneath the tabletop. The mechanisms were also carefully crafted to ensure smooth movement and stability. Decoration: Biedermeier furniture is known for its simple elegance, so decorations were typically understated. The focus was on the quality of the wood and craftsmanship.

Production of Biedermeier dining tables required a great deal of craftsmanship and precision. The tables were crafted by skilled carpenters and artisans who adhered to the principles of the Biedermeier style, which emphasized simplicity and timeless elegance. The resulting dining tables were not only functional but also aesthetically pleasing, making them sought-after collector’s items today.

The Use of Saw Veneer

Saw veneer was already common in the years 1815-1830, during the Biedermeier era. During this time, furniture manufacturing in the Biedermeier style, especially in Germany and Austria, experienced a heyday. Saw veneer was frequently used in Biedermeier furniture production because of its suitability for the simple and elegant Biedermeier style.

The techniques for producing saw veneer were already established at that time, and craftsmen could cut wood blocks into thinner pieces with saws. This allowed them to emphasize the grain and structure of the wood in furniture, a characteristic feature of the Biedermeier style. Saw veneer was used in tabletops, cabinet doors, and other furniture pieces to showcase the natural beauty of the wood.

In the 19th century, there was a preference for simple and timeless designs, and saw veneer aligned well with this aesthetic approach, highlighting the naturalness and elegance of the wood. Biedermeier furniture using saw veneer is now sought-after collector’s items, known for their craftsmanship and sophisticated style.

Veneer Types

During the Biedermeier era, which took place in Austria and other parts of Europe, various veneer types were used in furniture manufacturing. The Biedermeier style was characterized by simple elegance and an emphasis on natural materials. Here are some of the veneer types commonly used in Biedermeier furniture manufacturing:

Cherry Veneer: Cherry wood veneer was one of the most popular choices for Biedermeier furniture. The wood has a warm color and beautiful grain, fitting well with the simple Biedermeier style. Birch Veneer: Birch wood was often used for Biedermeier furniture because it has a light and creamy color with fine grain. Walnut Veneer: Walnut veneer was also occasionally used. Walnut wood has a deeper color and a striking grain, used in some furniture pieces to create contrasts. Mahogany Veneer: Mahogany was occasionally used in the later years of the Biedermeier era. This darker wood with a rich grain added a touch of elegance to the furniture. Ebony Veneer: Ebony, a very dark and dense wood, was sometimes used for accents and contrasts to emphasize the simplicity of the Biedermeier style.
