This furniture style was during the reign of George I, George II, George III in Great Britain. The most important change that occurred in the furniture in Georgian style was the replacement of walnut, by mahogany. The legs are elaborately carved terminating in a pad or ball-and-claw foot. Separate designers distinguished themselves in the late Georgian period, this is known as the “The Golden Age of Furniture”. Important designers were: Chippendale, Hepplewhite, Adam. Common items included side tables with marble tops, chairs peaked with shells and legs graced with fish-scaled scrolls.
