While Queen Anne style is an undeniably prim and proper, a second look reveals it’s actually all about showing a little leg. The Queen Anne style first originated in 18th Century England under the reign of Queen Anne, but a more recent revival took place at the end of the 19th Century as the Victorian aesthetic was being ushered in. With a focus on sweet, feminine curves, Queen Anne armoires feature bonnet tops and chairs showcase those curvy cabriole legs that end in paw-like feet. Our tip? Make sure to display them in spaces with plenty of leg room.
