This blond look made its entrance in Europe as during the 1830’s. The style was originally developed in Germany but made its way up to Denmark and got the name Biedermeier. While mahogany was still popular in the northern parts of Sweden Birch was the preferred wood down in the southern regions. The style was more prominent in homes of the upper middle class .
