Victorian Wirework Jardinière
Named after Queen Victoria of England, who ruled from 1837 to 1901 – the period from which it was derived – original Victorian design is recognized for its luxurious and highly ornate aesthetic. The antithesis to minimalism, the Victorian aesthetic favored an abundance of intricate prints, patterns and textures, and is characterized by deep jewel tones and dark wood furnishings such as those made from mahogany and walnut. Weighty fabrics like velvet and damask lent themselves to the creation of an interior brimming with warmth and comfort. Decadent window treatments, intricately carved furniture and elaborate collections of accessories and novel curio (as the genre of curiosity cabinets gained popularity during the Victorian era) all contributed to the grandiose yet refined atmosphere that became synonymous with the Victorian look.
