Furniture crafted in the Queen Anne style dates from the 1720s to approximately 1750 in England, although the ruler it is named after died in 1714. In the United States production ran longer, right up to 1800 or so. This ever-popular style falls within the Colonial period.

Marking a shift toward elegance and refinement in American furniture manufacture, Queen Anne style pieces were the first to incorporate the curving cabriole leg. Most pieces, even pedestal accent tables and bed frames, featured a cabriole-shaped leg even if on a shorter scale than those used on chairs and tables.

The pad foot is the most common found on Queen Anne pieces, but spade and trifid feet were used as well. These replaced the heavy look of the ball foot used previously in William and Mary styling, in keeping with the lighter look of this style.

Many Queen Anne style pieces were primarily crafted of walnut, but cherry and maple were used as well. Imported mahogany became popular with furniture craftsmen working in this style around 1750, according to Schwartz. Mahogany was frequently imported from the Caribbean, so it was most commonly used in port cities.

Even today, Queen Anne influence is found in formal furniture design and manufacturing, especially the use of the ubiquitous cabriole legs and pad feet. They are often combined with other style elements to create unique, modern looks with traditional influence.
