I have been blessed many times over for giving freely of my time to help others. I may not always have or find all the answers but at least I try. I don't expect 'thank you's', but when they are given to others on the same thread that I worked on (Sometimes for hours) and I'm ignored, I begin to think it is time to move on. I have no room left in my heart for any more sadness.
Federal furniture refers to American furniture produced in the Federal Period, which lasted from approximately 1789 to 1823. Notable furniture makers who worked in the federal style included Duncan Phyfe and Charles-Honoré Lannuier. It was influenced by the Georgian and Adam styles, and was superseded by the American Empire style. Pieces in this style are characterized by their sharply geometric forms, legs that are usually straight rather than curved, contrasting veneers, and geometric inlay patterns on otherwise flat surfaces. Pictorial motifs, when extant, usually reference the new federal government with symbols such as the eagle.
