Empire

Empire

A period of design during the reign of Napoleon I. It was most prevalent between 1800 and the late 1820s. It was considered the second wave of neoclassicism and marked a return to ostentatious design, a departure from the more conservative Directoire period that directly preceded it. It was intended to idealize the majesty of the French state and Napoleonic rule. Mahogany was the most popular wood during the period, and brass ornamentation and dark marbles were in vogue. Greek, Roman, and Egyptian motifs were also widely used. The style spread throughout Europe and appeared in America in some of Duncan Phyfe's work.

Oak

Oak

A dense hardwood valued in furniture making for its durability and strength. It varies in shade depending on variety and can range from a lighter wood (white oak) to a deep reddish brown (red oak). It became popular during the Tudor period in England and remains a popular wood variety.
