The Victorian Era

Every style from Rococo to Gothic was enjoyed a revival in the Victorian era. The best way to describe the dГ©cor of the period would as luxurious and opulent. Wrought iron furniture was extremely popular due to the fact that it could be ‘worked’ into intricate, elaborate designs. The industrial revolution had allowed for the mass production of the material. Traditional craftsmen produced fabulously ornate designs that graced the Victorian homes. Often referred to as a ‘heavy,’ style of decorating, Victorian England adored wrought iron furniture. French inspired curls, twists and swirls were popular both inside the home in mirrors, candle holders, coat stands and tables. An English country garden would not have been complete without traditional lawn chairs and wrought iron benches.

This also influenced the popularity of wrought iron furniture as curvy designs incorporating plants, birds, flowers and vines were easy to create.
