Directoire Style

A transitional style between Louis XVI and Empire style, the Directoire Style takes its name from the Directory period of the French Revolution. Heavily Neoclassical, it draws inspiration from the aesthetics of the Roman Republic. That democratic, populist approach resulted in a less lavish and elaborate period than the subsequent or previous styles. Directoire furniture combines well with contemporary pieces, thanks to its more subdued elegance.
