    The first Spanish furniture that came to Mexico was a folding chair, well painted, that Cortes gave the emperor Moctezuma in 1519.

    Since then, Mexico's Colonial furniture were made with woods that the Spanish conquistadors brought to Mexico as oak, cedar, pine and cypress, as well as European tools of iron and steel for woodworking such as saws, bits, gurbia and more.

    At the beginning of the sixteenth century Mexican artisans learned how to make chairs, benches, tables, beds, wardrobes, cupboards and chests in Spanish style. And at the end of the century indigenous artisans began making furniture from what they had learned, adding elements of their own creativity.

    Mexican Colonial Furniture was born, which acquired subsequent influences coming from Europe. The decorative styles of France, Italy and England inspired Mexican carpenters.

    About the same time various types of furniture were developed in colonial Mexico, mainly in Guanajuato, Michoacan, Puebla, Taxco (Guerrero) and Tlacotalpan (Veracruz).

    However, these five styles of Mexican colonial furniture, and other less important, share some characteristic features inherited from the antique furniture of the Spanish viceroyalty.
