Irish Period Furniture

The period furniture gallery traces the development of furniture designed, made or used in Ireland from the late 17th Century. The collection is displayed in period contexts according to the species of wood available at the time – from oak and walnut to mahogany and satinwood. This evolution is then traced to the use of such materials as chrome in the early 20th Century.

Location: National Museum of Ireland - Decorative Arts & History, Collins Barracks, Second Floor, West Block, Benburb St, Dublin 7.
