At its roots, Early American Formal furniture visibly resembles its English, French, and Dutch predecessors. European styles traveled across the ocean with the speed of a merchant ship and were quickly adapted to suit the local materials, tastes, and craft skills of each major region of the American colonies and, eventually, the states.  Innovations in style and construction distinguished American pieces from their European counterparts, exhibiting the skill and creativity of American craftsmen throughout the young nation.
