I have been building high style period furniture since I specialize in building accurate museum quality reproductions of antique originals. My favorite pieces are from the Philadelphia Queen Anne and Chippendale styles. These are characterized by bold, elaborate carvings and classic 18th century lines. Trailing Blossoms on Red fabric is a reproduction 18th-century fabric from the Colonial Williamsburg collections. This lovely floral historic pattern has vines of dark pink, peach, and dark green/blue buds and blossoms on a dark red background. %.
