The Victorians provided us with one of our most distinctive and enduring architectural periods, with Victorian design classics and faithful reproductions remaining highly popular and hotly sought after with home owners of period properties.
The mid 19th century was a time when the architecture and decorative styles, broadly know as Victorian (after the reigning monarch of the time) became more evident, influenced by everything from medieval Gothic style through to more decorative middle eastern design styles. Victorian design therefore is well known for it's sometimes lavish and often formal yet decorative characteristics, with an enduring appeal that remains today.
Whilst some Gothic influences are clear, it failed to become a universal style though later in the Victorian era, architecture and design were influenced more greatly by the whimsy and creativity of the Arts and Crafts movement, lending itself well to the excess ornamentation and grandeur characteristic of Victorian design.
Order and ornamentation became bywords for Victorian design, providing us with the stunning furniture, architecture and decorative styles that still captures hearts today.
