Also known as Eastlake in the United States, after designer and writer Charles Eastlake, this revival style is confusingly named. Many of the simpler elements that Eastlake espoused for furniture, such as incised carving, spindles, and jagged, tooth-like trim, were more characteristic of the early and mid-1600s, rather than the turn-of-the-18th-century Queen Anne style produced in the real Queen Anne's day.
