This really is a nice pair of elegant Art Deco tables or Art Deco bedside cabinets created within the Biedermeier style from the last quarter of the 20th century.

Produced from satin birch wood, the round tops of these Art Deco tables surmount three elegantly curved legs. The tables each sit on a solid wooden base, providing steadiness. They also offer a drawer for storage. These Art Deco cabinets are extremely versatile pieces and would work as well in a bedroom as bedside tables, or in a living room or office as side tables.

Biedermeier is a creative style that was popular in Central Europe from 1815 (the year of the Congress of Vienna which took place at the end of the Napoleonic Wars) to 1848 when Europe was swept by a number of popular revolutions that in turn changed the aesthetic of the time. The term is primarily used to signify styles that blossomed in literature and music, interior design and the visual arts. Based on utilitarian principles, it was a particularly fashionable type of furniture design in Germany between 1815 and 1848, but it then spread into Austria and Scandinavia.

The Biedermeier style was a simplification of the influential French Empire style of Napoleon I and the original design ethic was one of clean lines and minimal embellishment. This was a reaction against what was considered to be over decorative 'Romanticism' and the heavy reliance on ancient Egyptian, Greek and Roman designs. However, as the period advanced, the style changed to incorporate ornamentation, as the rising middle classes in Europe desired to show off their increasing wealth and position. In keeping with its emphasis on utilitarian simplicity, the furniture was made from locally grown woods such as cherry, ash and oak keeping away from the high priced timbers such as imported mahogany.

The Vienna Applied Arts Museum presented an exhibition on the style in 1896 which led to a resurrection of Biedermeier amongst European cabinetmakers. The design remained fashionable until Art Deco grabbed the scene. Biedermeier also influenced the Bauhaus movement as they both subscribed to the concept of 'being true to the material'.


These Art Deco Biedermeier cabinets are in fantastic condition, please take a close look at the supplied photographs for confirmation of this.

Our reference: 00851

Biedermeier period refers to an era in Central Europe during which arts appealed to common sensibilities in the historical period between 1815, the year of the Congress of Vienna at the end of the Napoleonic Wars, and 1848, the year of the European revolutions.

Although the term itself is a historical reference, it is predominantly used to denote the artistic styles that flourished in the fields of literature, music, the visual arts and interior design.

Biedermeier was an influential style of furniture design from Germany during the years 1815–1848, based on utilitarian principles. The period extended into Austria and Scandinavia.

Throughout the period, emphasis was kept upon clean lines and minimal ornamentation. As the period progressed, however, the style moved from the early rebellion against Romantic-era fussiness to increasingly ornate commissions by a rising middle class, eager to show their newfound wealth.

The idea of clean lines and utilitarian postures would resurface in the 20th century, continuing into the present day. The Biedermeier style was a simplified interpretation of the influential French Empire Style of Napoleon I, which introduced the romance of ancient Roman Empire styles, adapting these to modern early 19th century households. Biedermeier furniture used locally available materials such as cherry, ash and oak woods rather than the expensive timbers such as fully imported mahogany. 

Biedermeier furniture and lifestyle was a focus on exhibitions at the Vienna applied arts museum in 1896. The many visitors to this exhibition were so influenced by this fantasy style and its elegance that a new resurgence or revival period became popular amongst European cabinetmakers.

This revival period lasted up until the Art Deco style was taken up. Biedermeier also influenced the various Bauhaus styles through their truth in material philosophy.
