Hepplewhite’s style was known to have certain similarities with British designer Thomas Sheraton’s furniture. Older Hepplewhite style tends to have more detail with substantially more carving and curvilinear shapes. These are popular chairs for designers and look elegant in a traditional or eclectic dining room. To see different angles of the chairs please visit the ERA Interiors store.
Sheraton style incorporates segmented curves and straight lines which creates a crisp and light style. It was inspired by the neoclassical elements of Robert Adam’s work and adapted for use in small, domestic interiors. There are many variations of chairs in the Sheraton style and some incorporate delicate marquetry and paintings of flowers, feathers, acanthus leaves and classical urns as ornaments. This Sheraton chair features a rectangular chair back with squared tapered legs, spade feet that continued upward to form the side braces of the back. Most of Sheraton’s chairs were located in dining rooms, dressing rooms and lady’s bedrooms.
This mahogany round Regency dining table features a 6’ diameter table top supported by a simple single pedestal decorated with hand carved foliage on the upper portion of the base. The table base is also made out of solid mahogany with brass castors shaped like lion’s paws on the ends of the legs. Furniture during the Sheraton period was often created utilizing satinwood or satin-birch, featuring classical motifs and extensive use of inlay, and is usually light in scale, slim and graceful. Other popular decorative ornaments featured on Sheraton furniture include a Lion’s Mask, a Sphinx and stringing lines.
