I recently went to the American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum in New York City with my daughter. She’s studying interior design so we focused on furniture and home decor through the centuries.
Here are some more photos of the wonderful pieces we saw.
I love the different tones of wood on this hutch
A wonderful old Grandfather Clock
Unusual piece with two-toned wood and an odd-shaped base
A lovely desk/dressing table

Chairs are my favorite furniture item. Here are a few from American history
