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 It was influenced by the Georgian and Adam styles, and was superseded by the American Empire style.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.
