Queen Anne Furniture :  

    Queen Anne style furniture was named after Queen Anne of England. This style developed in America between 1720 and 1760. The Queen Anne style is a refinement of the William and Mary style, which came before.  Queen Anne furniture became visually pleasing through grace instead of ornamentation. The most notable ornamentation on Queen Anne furniture was the carved cockle or scallop shell.  Otherwise the furniture was relatively simple, without many other flourishes. The straight, turned legs of previous styles were replaced with more graceful, curving legs called cabriole.  Cabriole legs have a flowing S shape, with the knee curving out, and the ankle curving in.  Walnut, cherry, tiger maple, maple, and mahogany became the preferred wood in Queen Anne furniture
