A person who is in love with the past when things were associated with beauty and grace will always like the Victorian style furniture. The Victorian style furniture can be made from different types of wood and furnishings which complement designs that stress on colors that provide the room with a stylish look. Victorian style furniture typically has intricate carving with curving lines and natural images such as leafy patterns, floral patterns, or animals. The Art Nouveau style, which came later, has similar patterns and decorations, making it trickier to determine if a piece of furniture is Victorian. However, unlike Art Nouveau furniture, Victorian pieces will have angular lines and shapes along with carvings added onto the furniture. The basic shape of a Victorian chair or table is straight but with curves along the seat back, the bottom or legs of the chair, or at the bottom below the cushions on a sofa. Decorative friezes and curved moldings are common in Victorian pieces.
