What is European Style Furniture?
French Style Furniture from all periods prior to modern, from Renaissance to Rococo, Classic Revival to French Provincial, have soft, curved lines and elegant forms. The colours are usually pale and the furniture pieces usually have decorated cabriole legs. The use of gold leaf is also significant, originally found in furniture that belonged to the aristocracy.
Although many of the defining features of French furniture depend upon the time period that one is looking at, there are a few elements of the French aesthetic that remain constant across centuries, albeit, in different degrees. The most significant characteristic of French furniture in the ‘refined’ nature of the pieces, with most of them being intricately decorated with paintings and delicate carvings.
In France, from the late 18th century and through most of the nineteenth-century designers looked back to the classical Greek and Roman styles. This is seen in the furniture of Louis XVI, the Directoire, the Empire, Restoration and time of Louis Philippe. In contrast, as well as styles more suited for the palace or grand chateaux, there has always been a long tradition of good solid, rustic and traditional furniture in France, harking to its rural roots.
Italian Renaissance Style Furniture, like most of the art and architecture of the glorious period, reflected ancient and classical designs in form and decoration. The carvings on the furniture from this era were intricate, and mythological creatures commonly appeared. Italian Renaissance furniture set a benchmark for the rest of Europe and started a trend for palatial, decorative and artistic pieces made of woods like walnut and chestnut. X-shaped chairs, heavily detailed chests, and tables with ornate legs featuring scrolls are typical of this era. Renaissance style furniture has also been reproduced at several points in history.
With Italy being the birthplace of the Renaissance, it is hardly surprising that the style of furniture draws heavily from this heritage and it has influenced furniture design across the world.
