Eastlake Handles

Eastlake Handles
The Eastlake furniture style as envisioned by its namesake, Charles Lock Eastlake, came about in response to his aversion to the over-the-top Rococo Revival and Renaissance Revival styles popular during the Victorian era.
Although Eastlake furniture is technically considered Victorian, being popular from 1870-1890, it breaks away from the excessive high relief carving, classical elements, and numerous curves of other styles produced during this time frame. Schwartz adds, "The first glimpses of modernism" can be seen in Eastlake's reformed style.
