During the English Georgian period, one of the most famous cabinetmakers, Thomas Chippendale, began his career. Cabinetmakers were skilled in crafting fine furnishings, what we would call high-end quality. The interesting thing about Chippendale was that he was not an inventor. Instead, he took the best designs from other countries and adapted them into his own style. He was greatly influenced by French Rococo, Chinese and Gothic styles. He is best known for his great chair designs and because of these classic designs his name endures.
Now, let's shift our focus to English furniture styles. As we said before, usually dominant styles were named after monarchs. We see this in the Queen Anne, William and Mary or English Georgian (after King George) styles. However, during the mid 1700's there was a quiet revolution in design that changed how the furniture styles were named. They now were named after the designer.
After the world war era, demand for homes increased and so did the demand for furniture used in the outdoor settings. The styles adopted usually oozed with functionality and maximum utility. All the types of furniture were popular - wood to metal and aluminum as well. Apart from usual tables and chairs and the swing there was also the feeder for the birds, statues and many other decorative items. Apart from these, today there is also a trend that allows you to create a recreation room for the family to get together and relax while watching TV or playing games.
