CHARACTERISTICS OF VICTORIAN FURNITURE
Here are a few characteristics of victorian furniture that we ensure we try to add onto our collection of replica victorian and antique styles.
Victorian furniture took birth due to the very fact that the well-off wished to showcase their social status with expensive-looking furniture laden across the living room, bedroom & dining area. It’s no wonder that victorian furniture was hardly frugal in proportions, especially the ones suffixed with royalty names & titles like Kings chair, Queens bed, Louis XVI Elizabethan furniture etc
COLORS & TEXTURE
This is one of the main factors that differentiate between victorian & art deco. While both are extravagant by their own right, victorian furniture boasts ornamentation out of a plethora of materials, floral patterns and deep colors blended into silk & velvet.
EXCESSIVE USE OF WOOD
Early victorian style furniture used a lot of wood in their furniture design, the latter versions saw an increasing trend of metallic hints thanks to the advent of the industrial revolution. Original victorian furniture was made out of rosewood, oak, or walnut, but at FurnitureRoots, we make them out of teakwood or mango wood for a greater composition of shape and form.
At FurnitureRoots, we use modern distressing techniques like sanding, woodblock, scraping, and rinsing to achieve a natural-looking aged & “weathered” look that is characteristic of most vintage furniture pieces that have survived till the 21st century.
REPRODUCTION FURNITURE – A GOOD IDEA?
Often confused with “fake furniture’ or a “cheap rip off” and in some extreme cases, even a scam. The key difference between any of these and reproduction furniture is that reproduction furniture is not concealed as an original, it is, in fact, a celebration of a culture, of craftsmanship and a bygone era.
At FurnitureRoots, we consider it an art to be able to come up with original victorian “themed furniture” and we rarely ever even attempt to make an inch-by-inch replica of any authentic victorian furniture. But we do honestly hope that our attempts at pulling these off will be of value to anyone looking to spruce up their home or commercial business with a medieval theme that is exactly as per the interior requirements
