Cabriole Legs

Cabriole Legs

Wiki:

A cabriole leg is one of (usually) four vertical supports of a piece of furniture shaped in two curves; the upper arc is convex, while lower is concave; the upper curve always bows outward, while the lower curve bows inward; with the axes of the two curves in the same plane. This design was used by the ancient Chinese and Greeks, but emerged in Europe in the very early 18th century, when it was incorporated into the more curvilinear styles produced in France, England and Holland.

Originally used by the ancient Greeks and Chinese, still used by the Chinese to this day. This style of leg fell out of fashion in Europe before the middle ages but quickly became fashionable again in the mid 18th Century.

Interestingly, the actual style during Queen Anne's Reign, which lasted only 12 years from 1702 - 1714 in the Stuart era, is said to have been Late Baroque. This period gave rise to a type of furniture known today as, you guessed it, the Queen Anne Style. The term Queen Anne refers to the style around the time of King George II, who succeeded King George I and reigned from 1727 - 1760, in the Georgian era.

Cabriole Legs feature a concave curve at one end and a convex curve at the other. The Cabriole Leg is also known as the Queen Anne.
