Louis XVI

Louis XVI

King Louis-Auguste reigned in France between 1774 to 1793. The Louis XVI style was a return to classicism looking to Greek and Roman culture for inspiration. Characteristics of this style were architectural ornamentation, classic symmetry, geometric marquetry,decorative escutcheons, small mechanized elements, and the predominant use of mahogany with linear gilt bronze mounts that emphasized veneers. Decorative motifs such as garland swags, horns of plenty, vasiform shapes, olive leaves, and cone finials were common and often referencing historical styles.

Marquetry

Marquetry

A flush pattern produced by inserting contrasting materials in a veneered surface. Rare, grained, and colored woods are usually used, but thin layers of tortoiseshell, ivory, mother-of-pearl, and metals are also seen. If the pattern is of a geometric nature, it is called parquetry.

Ormolu

Ormolu

French gilding technique of applying finely ground gold with a mercury amalgam to an object of bronze. High heat is applied in a kiln burning off the mercury and leaving behind the gold affixed to the bronze and is finished by hand-chasing. Also known as gilt-bronze or bronze doré. Often used to refer to bronze furniture mounts enhanced by gilding.

Satinwood

Satinwood

Satinwood is a bright, rich golden-yellow wood, hard in texture. This wood is often imported from Brazil or grown in southern India and Ceylon. Satinwood is valued in cabinetry work.

Armoire

Armoire

An armoire is a large decorative cabinet that can be used to store clothes or electronics. Armoires generally have two tall doors and lots of storage options, such as hanging space, built in drawers or smaller cabinets. Due to their relatively large size, an armoire is considered an excellent option for those who need extra closet space. The armoire originated in the late 16th century and was originally built to store weapons and tools.
