The Neoclassical Style
The Neoclassical style has its origins in the 18th century France. During the reign of Louis XVI, interior decorations and furniture designs were inspired by the design language of Greek and Roman antiquity. The excavations in Pompeii and following this, the discovery of antique decorations had a big impact on the artists and designers of this period.
The Neoclassical furniture style features an unpretentious and elegant form language with often plain veneers, sometimes decorated with geometric inlays. Especially in Germany, the later phase at the end of the 18th century and the beginning of the 19th century moves away from pompous decorations to a more humble and modern design, which eventually leads to the Biedermeier style.
