Because of the American Revolutionary War, Thomas Adam’s neo-classical style of furniture never reached America and the Hepplewhite and Sheraton styles both arrived at about the same time. As a result, the two English styles tended to be mixed in America in a style sometimes called “Federal”.
The prevailing forms were straight lines, rectangular forms and motifs from classical architecture.
The sewing table, with its large pouch, came from this period.
The most famous maker of this type of furniture was Duncan Phyfe. who, from about 1805, became influenced by the more extravagant French Directoire style in which concave curves predominate. He is famous for his elegant sofas, lyre-back chairs and monumental tables.
