Tables. Georgian drawing rooms have numerous small tables, reflecting society’s interest in inviting friends for tea, cards, and/or conversation. Tea tables also fold down, and tops may be round, oblong, rectangular, piecrust, or polygonal. They have legs or rest on a carved or fluted shaft terminating in a carved tripod called a claw. Dining tables have three parts: a center with drop leaves and two semicircular ends. The pieces are placed against the wall when not in use.

 

 Storage. Every fashionable Georgian drawing room has a commode. It has a straight, bombé, and/or serpentine-shaped front and sides.

Beds. Four-poster beds are the most fashionable. Queen Anne types follow earlier forms, but Chippendale headboards are elaborately carved with Rococo, Chinese, or Gothic details.
