Personality comes through the details. For a desk that feels experimental and individualistic, many turn to the Queen Anne style, either through antiques or contemporary pieces inspired by its lines and flourishes.
As you create a study or update your work area, here’s why a Queen Anne desk catches our discerning eye.
What is Queen Anne Style?
True Queen Anne desks and furniture were crafted following the eponymous queen’s reign, with this period in Europe lasting until the mid-18th century. Yet, rather than this style of curved silhouettes and cabriole legs fade out, it experienced a revival on the other side of the Atlantic, coinciding with what we now call the Colonial furniture period.
Whether an antique, vintage or contemporary Queen Anne-style desk, this form tends to overlap with both William and Mary and Chippendale characteristics yet stands apart with its arched, vase-line forms and pad foot ends.
