Adam Style - (Furniture)

TheAntiqueTrade.co.uk Glossary of Antique Terms

Adam Style - (Furniture) Adam, Robert (1728-92): Architect and designer who was responsible for the introduction of a classical revival in England. His three brothers also worked in the architectural profession, and James and William Adam joined Robert Adam in the London-based family business (the eldest brother, John Adam, like his father, was a Palladian architect and was based in Scotland). The Adam style in furniture, and ceramics, is characterized by severe classical motifs. The Adams brothers designed furniture but made no furniture themselves.
