Egyptian style

The art of the Early Kingdom occurs around 3000-2700 year BC. From that era are preserved many remarkable works of arts and crafts: jewelry products, utensils, furniture with a ritual purpose. The products have high technique, thin taste and perfect knowledge of the forms. In the history of furniture Egypt ranks among the top. The first evidence of furniture is precisely dated from ancient Egypt

The dry Egyptian climate and exquisite burial procedures explain partly preserved items, including chairs, tables, seats and sofas. In addition, the wall paintings give us an idea of the design of Egyptian furniture. As in the design and manufacture, methods used in ancient Egypt and today remained in furniture art. In large objects such as seating and tables is used the method of making "wedge and open" known in ancient Egypt and to this day, although the wedges are replaced by brackets for a more vigorous production. The sides of the finest cases are fitted by the masters of Egypt with ornamented wedges, a technique preserved until today. Golden leaves are used for the legs of chairs and tables, inlays of ivory and other materials appear on panels of chests and other furniture. The main theme is anthropomorphic shapes of the legs and chests in the shape of miniature buildings.

Symbolism also plays an important role in instillation a sense of order. It was leading in the Egyptian art, seniority of the symbols of Pharaonic power - from the crown and scepter (symbolizing his power) to the individual symbols of Egyptian gods and goddesses. Animals were also highly symbolic figures in Egyptian art.
