The Colonial Style was born from the Union between that brought by settlers from their mother-country and native style of the colonized areas.
In the contemporary decor, the American and Eastern one are the best known and most loved: many are the environments that can be decorated with reproductions of the typical furniture of the era of colonialism. They can create elegant and exotic atmospheres, and make wood a major protagonist, Typical of this styles are four-poster beds, dressers and chests of drawers. Both styles are affected by the Anglo-Saxon taste and lines, albeit with significant differences due to local influences.
The furniture in the American Colonial Style is simple, massive, solid, without unnecessary ornaments; modern reproductions though, have developed more refined, classic and squared-off lines. The wood is chosen among the species native to North America, such as oak, maple, oak, walnut, mahogany and cherry.
The furniture in the Eastern Colonial Style is more harmonious and its functionality is subject to order and simplicity. The woods used are teak, rosewood and bamboo.
