Sheratonis a late 18th centuryneoclassicalEnglish furniturestyle, in vogueca1785 - 1820, that was coined by 19th century collectors and dealers to credit furniture designerThomas Sheraton, born inStockton-on-Tees,Englandin 1751 and whose books, "The Cabinet Dictionary" (1803) of engraved designs and the "Cabinet Maker's & Upholsterer's Drawing Book" (1791) of furniture patterns exemplify this style.
The Sheraton style was inspired by theLouis XVI styleand features round tapered legs, fluting and most notably contrasting veneer inlays. Sheraton style furniture takes lightweight rectilinear forms, usingsatinwood,mahoganyand tulipwood, sycamore and rosewood for inlaid decorations, though painted finishes and brass fittings are also to be found. Swags, husks, flutings, festoons, and rams' heads are amongst the common motifs applied to pieces of this style.
Without pedantic archaeology, it brought the Neoclassical taste of architects likeRobert Adamwithin reach of the middle class. In many respects Sheraton style corresponds with the contemporaryDirectoirestyle of France. The Sheraton style was the most reproduced style in the United States during the Federal period.
