Late 18th century French/English-Canadian Chest of drawers at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Montreal - After the British Conquest of Canada in the Seven Years' War, English furniture styles began to emerge in Quebec.  However, French-Canadian craftsmen still held on to their former styles and methods even as they borrowed from the British.
