Robert Adam style furniture

1728 -1792

Robert Adam (3 July 1728 . 3 March 1792) was a Scottish neoclassical architect, interior designer and furniture designer. He developed the "Adam Style", and his theory of "movement" in architecture, based on his studies of antiquity, by contrasting room sizes and decorative schemes.
He replaced the ornate curvature of the Chippendale designs with the straight lines of Roman columns. The chair back usually has the classical motif like the shape of a Greek lyre.
Furniture at this time was often made of mahogany and satinwood.
