American furniture of the early colonial period generally falls into two stylistic categories: the Seventeenth-Century style (1620–1690) and the Early Baroque, or William and Mary, style (1690–1730). The Seventeenth-Century style reflects the transmission into the New World of late medieval and Renaissance traditions by immigrant craftsmen.
