Comments Off on All in the Scroll: The Sleigh Style
If you’re like most furniture shoppers, you like choosing a style that elicits positive vibes about another place, time or experience. That’s we go for styles like Shaker, Mission, and Victorian. Yet, here’s one popular style that’s often overlooked. And it’s All in the Scroll: The Sleigh Style.
The Sleigh Style is named for its semblance to traditional snow sleighs. This explains its rounded top, graceful lines, scrolled feet and bold, assertive look. In the world of Amish furniture, this style is gaining popularity like never before.
All in the Scroll: The Sleigh Style
A remarkable feature about the Sleigh Style is the way in which Amish designers intersperse the rounded theme with flat panels throughout the piece. For example, the ‘scroll’ takes the form of the crown molding at the top of pieces like the bookcase, wall unit, and entertainment center (see photo). Then, it reappears as the rounded front panel for the drawer in consoles, cabinets, dressers, and tables. Also, Amish cabinetmakers integrate the scroll into the feet of each piece.
