An alternative title for this lecture could be ‘Furniture of the Age of Elegance’ because the term Georgian immediately conjures up images of elegant English Furniture. This lecture traces the development of elegance through style in relation to the design and construction of furniture during the 18th century. It commences with an appraisal of early 18th century walnut furniture and progresses through the Mahogany Rococo style of the 1740s to 1760s to the fancy-wood neo-classical styles of the last quarter of the century.
Janusz is a freelance lecturer and researcher in English furniture history and also antique dealer.
