Biedermeier was an influential style of furniture design from Germany during the years 1815-1848, based on utilitarian principles. The Biedermeier movement expanded to the northeastern countries such as Denmark and Sweden and Poland to the east, where many great pieces where made. The period extended into Scandinavia, as disruptions due to numerous states that made up the German nation were not unified by rule from Berlin until 1871. These post-Biedermeier struggles, influenced by historicism, created their own styles. Throughout the period, emphasis was kept upon clean lines and minimal ornamentation. As the period progressed, however, the style moved from the early rebellion against Romantic-era fussiness to increasingly ornate commissions by a rising middle class, eager to show their newfound wealth. The idea of clean lines and utilitarian postures would resurface in the 20th century, continuing into the present day. Middle- to late-Biedermeier furniture design represents the a heralding towards historicism and revival eras long sought for.
