|An ebonized Eastlake pedestal.|
The Eastlake style is broadly defined by geometric patterns, incised decorations, heavy cornices, spindles, finials, alternating wood tones, and carvings inspired by the lines of nature. Charles Eastlake’s desire was that his furnishings would be easy to maintain and be long-lasting. And, long-lasting, they were. Eastlake style furnishings have stood the test of time and can often be found in extremely good condition.
