The design of the chair is an antecedent of the Federal-Style Lolling Chair of the late 18th century, a popular easy chair. Federal style is a term used to describe furniture created in America during the Federal Period (late 18th to early 19th century) that corresponds with European Neoclassicism. European Neoclassicism is the use of classical forms and decoration whose inspiration comes from the contemporary rediscovery of the classical world through archaeology in the 18th century. Revival styles were quite common in the 19th century, and the Classicizing Federal style coexisted in America alongside Gothic, Renaissance, and Rococo revivals.
