Utilitarian necessity dictated all furniture making at the beginning of the Spanish conquest.

The austerity of the first furniture models where eventually discarded in favor of baroque and rococo taste as life in the colonies became more prosperous and comfortable.

In the monastic centers, this style had continued without any stylistic interruption, and now even seems to be precursor to the utilitarian and stark preferences made popular again in the 20th century.
