“This is a Biedermeier bed and nightstand in my daughter’s room. I was very happy that my 11-year-old daughter decided that this bed that she slept in in my mother’s house was her favorite and she would like to have it in her room in Pittsburgh. It is a bed family members have slept in for generations.” –Barbara Cano
The Biedermeier style of furniture was popular among the rising middle class in the early 19th century. Well-made, decorative furniture was prized by this group, who suddenly had discretionary income to spend on quality goods.
