Tudor furniture describes English furniture during the 16th century. Tudor furniture received its name after the reign of the House of Tudor during 1485-1603. Tudor furniture can be described as Gothic in character consisting of solid wood, heavy and large in size, and richly carved. Although Tudor furniture focused mainly on form rather than decor, some popular Tudor style ornamentation consisted of roses, strapwork, inlaying and caryatids. Oak was the predominant wood used to make Tudor style furniture.
