The suite shows the typical features of the Louis XVI style. The chairs of the Louis XV period were characterized by elegance, lightness and simplicity of form. The legs were often inspired by classical Greek or Roman column designs. The design of the carvings drew inspiration from antique decorations, mainly the wall decorations of Pompeii, which were discovered in the second half of the 18th century. Because of its straight lines, the Louis XVI style furniture is easy to combine with any contemporary interior. Incorporating pieces from different periods and styles is a great way to add character, energy, and liveliness to any room.
