Contained within this text is a detailed treatise on the furniture of the 'Empire' and 'Louis XVI' styles. Complete with information on history, popularity, manufacture, and much more besides, this text constitutes a great book for those with an interest in furniture from these periods and in historical furniture in general. Furniture under the reign of Louis XVI was elegant in its form and decoration, with much use of fluted columns, carved friezes, oak and laurel leaf wreaths, the Greek band, and other various Neoclassical attempts to imitate the artistic styles of the Romans and Greeks. The Empire style was the second phase of Neoclassicism in the early-nineteenth-century design movement - and influenced architecture, furniture, and other decorative arts. It was most prevalent between 1804 and 1814, during the First French Empire. We are proud to republish this book here complete with a new introduction on the history of furniture.
