Before you start to search for your week 4 chairs I want to head off a few questions. The Georgian Side chair is a continuation of the Queen Anne Style. Where Queen Anne style was short-lived, 1702-1714, the Georgian style takes over from 1714-1760. Queen Anne style is often referred to as a Georgian Style but the purpose of including this chair is to show the continuing evolution of a style. Where the Queen Anne has carved feet in the back, the Georgian has all four carved. The detail contained in the back is more defined and ornate as the style evolves. So… if you are in question what a Georgian Style side chair looks like go back to your Queen Anne Style chair and look for something that reminds you of that.

Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
