The style we refer to as Victorian today came about during the 1800’s. Instead of the typical high class status being reserved for royalty, a new generation of successful industrialists also gained the recognition of being wealthy. A steady flow of money was created by the introduction of new factories paved the way for these industrialists to build themselves large homes and, with this rise of what had been the middle classes, the demand for furniture increased. The tastes of this new, wealthy class became the most influential during Victorian times and the change in furniture styles accompanied this rapidly growing new world.
