The Biedermeier

I'm new to this style, but I do curious about it..
So the story is.. I was checking on this group page Gaisbauer Furniture on my Facebook account and interested on their products. So I look at their website here and found a lot more gorgeous furniture..

Stool (walnut)
Sofa (walnut)
I'm not really a big fans of classic but I like some of classic furniture.. They come in great shapes, really.. Some were combined by another materials (like that stool) that made it look simpler and yet modern, not old.. And I love the fact that they usually manufactured by hand.. and this Gaisbauer Furniture, made me curious about the Biedermeier style that they use on their products.

On my conclusion, Biedermeier style in furniture design is one of the classic styles that was very influential during the early 19th century in Austria and Germany, when the prospering middle-classes wanted a simpler style than the pompous, magnificent Empire style with its grand monumental mahogany furniture.

Biedermeier furniture used locally available materials such as cherry, ash and oak woods. The furniture was simple and elegant. Its original geometric shape often leads it to being described as the forerunner of the modern furniture.

Secretaire (walnut)
The secretaire is one of my favorite. I think it might be the 'it' thing on that time, like you have to put them on your room so that could make you look more fashionable.. things like that, you know, you are very cool if you have one, hehee..

Anyway, Gaisbauer Furniture is also did some projects with other designer. From cocktail bar project to the office room. And I do have my favorite one of their project.. This oval dinning set designed by Ernst Fuchs is just sooo gorgeous..!! :D
