American Georgian Furniture

Furniture complements the building and imitates English prototypes. Neo-Palladian and Early Georgian styles have been brought over but have either a new interpretation. The Queen Anne, Chippendale, or Early Georgian are either more elaborate or more simplified (confusing yes, but it is a little of both).

Types of furniture include chairs, sofas, secretaries, highboys, lowboys, tall cases called grandfather or hall clocks, firescreens, and beds.
Furniture has a purpose: to support the function of the room.
Furniture comes in the forms of seating, tables, storage and beds – to be simplistic. A common thing to do with beds is to add an embroidered hanging to poster beds.
