Chrome plated tubular steel may not sound like the material found in antique furniture. Steel does not have the patina, warmth, or graining of wood normally associated with antiques. However, the benchmark chair of contemporary furniture, the Wassily, which was designed in 1925 by Marcel Breuer of the Bauhaus School, will, in only 15 years, be considered an antique by government standards.
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.
Furniture buyers would benefit from understanding the difference between an interior design professional and an interior decorator. A designer usually has a college degree, while a decorator may or may not have a formal education. Interior design professionals who work with a specific London designer furniture company, for instance, usually have a formal design education and have ample experience working with that company's specific type of designer furnishings.
