A warm color system, such as a log color.
3, pay attention to decoration: no matter "classical" or "new classical furniture", you can often see all kinds of embroidery, tassels, rivets and other decorations.
The style of furniture in the United States is mainly rooted in European culture. What we call "American style furniture" generally refers to Federal Style (Federated style). American furniture and European furniture are handled differently in some details. For example, the paint of American style furniture is dominated by single color, and most of the European style furniture will be added with gold or other colors. Another important feature of American furniture is that it is more practical, such as a table specially used for sewing; it can be lengthened or dismantled into a few small tables.
However, both European furniture and American furniture attach importance to decoration. In addition to Campanula, wheat bundles and urn decorations, there are some symbolic patriotic designs in the United States, such as Eagle designs. They are often decorated with decorative techniques and decorated with paint or shallow relief.
American furniture emphasizes comfort, style, practicality and versatile functions. From the perspective of modeling, American furniture can be divided into three categories: antique, neoclassical and rural style.
Antique Style: the foundation of American furniture is the way of life brought by immigrants in the late Renaissance. From the classic furniture works from many 18 and nineteenth Century generations, it can be seen that, due to the pioneering spirit of the early American ancestors and the principle of advocating nature, the style is elegant, but the furniture without excessive decoration has become the representative work of the typical American furniture. Anne queen of CabrioI Leg, the chair of the furniture designer Chippendale (Thomas Chippendale), and the graceful lines of the Native American designer John Gore (John Godderd) in eighteenth Century, still hold a certain amount in American furniture to the day.
Country style: it has been playing an important role in American furniture. Because it is simple, bright and practical, it has long been loved by consumers in various countries. In the 1998 furniture exhibition was added to the multi-functional design, the appearance and material still keep the natural, simple style, the hidden design drawer took the space, make it look neat and beautiful. On the whole, American furniture conveys simple, leisure, organized and multi-functional design ideas, and makes the family a pure land to release pressure and emancipate the mind.
The most fascinating aspect of American furniture lies in its shape, texture, carving and tone. Generally speaking, American furniture has to go through several stages of operation to highlight the American style. The rare texture of different wood and different parts, and the special texture produced by the pathological changes in the growing period of trees, are the most favorite of American style furniture. Secondly, the natural drying method of wood and drying furnace are used to remove the gap between the wood and shrink the gap between the lines to avoid curl deformation. The third step is to select the parts of the wood. The best wood comes mostly from the core of wood and near the bottom of the trunk, while the central wood is usually more black than the new wood or the outer wood.
Neoclassical style of furniture
Federal furniture is similar to neoclassical furniture, which has been popular in Europe since 1760. Neoclassicism has abandoned the novelty and flamboyance pursued by Baroque and Rococo style, which is based on a new understanding of the classic, emphasizing simple, clear lines and elegant, decent decoration.
American style furniture is strict in style, and the process of painting is complicated. The volume of furniture is another feature of American furniture. Like the pure beauty family, there is a cracking paint on the back of the sofa, and the painting has applied 19 processes. And this characteristic also requires consumers to choose American furniture, on the basis of fully understanding the features and style of American style furniture, and to have a certain understanding of home ornaments, home environment and home color matching.
In addition to the harmony and uniformity in the interior style, American furniture also pays attention to the rationality of color matching. For example, the bed in the bedroom is warm color brown, so the main color of the bedroom is suitable to match blue, red or soil yellow, so the living room is more able to show the master's taste and cultural temperament.
Attention to details is very important because details are relatively concise. American furniture generally uses walnut wood and maple. In order to protrude the characteristics of wood itself, its veneer is treated with complex thin slices to make the texture a kind of decoration. It can produce different light sense at different angles. This makes American furniture look more attractive than the glittering Italian furniture.
The hardware decoration in American furniture is comparatively exquisite. There are hundreds of shapes in a small handle. It is these gadgets that make American furniture more stylish. Do not think that American style furniture is simple, famous designer AlexanderJulian for UNIVERSAL design of a furniture, veneer with bamboo fine grinding, feel as smooth as silk.
The American bed is very distinctive, with a high column and a top. The reason why the bed is high is that there are two layers of mattress, which is said to be more elastic. The chair best shows American "Queen Anna" features: the top of the chair is yoke shaped, decorated with shallow relief, the back of the chair is a vase type crate, the seat is made of horseshoe shaped U shape, but all the sculptures are not too complicated. This style is considered to be the model of Chinese furniture.
