Bisaillon. Dressers. October 11th , 2017.
The Queen Anne style of furniture is historically made from walnut, which is definitely a Colonial American tradition. Handmade dressers today are made from all kinds of wood, like butternut, cherry, mahogany or maple. Like walnut, butternut wood is prized for its soft, light yellow highlights and darker grains. In order to create a more contemporary look for a dresser, an artisan will blend different woods together. Making hardwood knobs out of different woods and materials is an easy way to give any traditional style of furniture a unique look. Darker dovetail details on the top of the dresser or on the paneling also brings a simple accent of elegance to an otherwise simple dresser. Studio furniture designers enjoy the freedom to play with combinations of knobs, joinery methods and natural woods to satisfy each and every clients personality and style.

Among the many styles of handmade wooden furniture that are still favored today is the Queen Anne style. The Queen Anne style of handmade wooden furniture was first made popular in America between 1720 to 1760 and can be distinguished from other styles by the signature cyma, or S-curve, that is seen in the feet of a dresser or chair, and may also be worked into other parts of a piece of furniture. These S-curves blend well with modern styles of decorating by softening the look of a heavy piece of furniture with the gentle curves.
