Evalina Bedside Table
In the late eighteenth century, a continued fascination with classical antiquity provided the impetus for the development of neoclassicism. Straight lines and delicate ornament, including inlaid decoration became the norm. An exquisite card table found in the 5th floor Montmorenci Stair Hall is the inspiration for the Evalina Writing Desk and Bedside Table. The antique table, characteristic of the work of Boston father and son cabinetmakers John and Thomas Seymour, exhibits the same canted and ovolo corners on the top and tapered legs with baluster and spool turnings as the form designed by Hickory Chair Company's artists.
