What are the features of Baroque furniture?

There are some tell-tale signs that an item of furniture is a Baroque masterpiece from as far back as the 16th century. These pieces are usually heavily carved and exhibit intricate details like outlines of cherubs or foliage. The extent of their detail has sometimes been termed as ‘elaborate ornamentation’ which is a perfect way of stressing the level of detail which has been applied to each piece.

Many of the items of furniture we associate with the Baroque period are made from mahogany or ebony wood, but items such as cabinets will often be complemented by glass fronts. The types of furniture commonly made in the baroque fashion are beds, sideboards, sunburst mirrors, chairs, drawers and cabinets.

Some specific features to look out for on Baroque furniture are the symmetry of each piece. These items were rarely made in asymmetrical shapes or designs. You’ll also see plenty of curves, twisted columns, gold, pedestal feet, motifs or even a gilded finish. These items of furniture are never subtle but very eye-catching and bold.

Why choose Baroque furniture?

As we have already mentioned, a lot of Baroque furniture was made with rich mahogany or ebony. These woods are exceptionally strong, which means Baroque furniture has been made to last. This is especially beneficial considering these items of furniture are an investment that will continue to grow in value as you continue to appreciate and enjoy them in your home. This isn’t something that can be said about brand new furniture.

Adding Baroque pieces is certain to make your home individual and unique. The grand elements coupled with exceptional detail will make a statement in any room of your house. When choosing these items, you don’t just add character and elegance, but you also add pieces of history and heritage that will amaze your guests.

When you buy a Baroque item you also make an environmental choice. Instead of adding to the demand for brand new materials to be sourced and manufactured into furniture, you opt for materials already in circulation. This is a more environmentally conscious and sustainable decision that significantly reduces your carbon footprint.
