The elegant Queen Anne table legs come from the 16th century, when she was queen of England. It was the beginning of the English baroque furniture and would set the stage for the English to finally become par with the French and Italians. The Queen Anne furniture was distinct in style and laid the foundations of many quality works to come. The uniqueness of Queen Anne furniture was largely due to the lacquer of the work, with rich oriental wares and China and the Dutch marquetry cabinets.
Walnut was the main wood used, although in the country oak, beech and other woods that were easy for the village craftsmen to acquire, were used. At the end of the Queen Anne styles, the more refined, delicate and humanized styles were employed, on a less grand scale.
Today, Queen Anne furniture continues to be very popular, as the elegance and masterful designs appeals to the artistic homeowner, who wants a piece of history woven into their own distinct style. Queen Anne styles are seen with tables, chairs, beds and the like. They come in a variety of different designs and lengths.
