Neo-classic

Neo-classic

Neo-classic refers to the second revival of classic design for interior decoration in the 18th century. This style was inspired by excavations of Pompeii and Herculaneum that begun in 1738. Common motifs include dolphins, lyres, and urns.

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.

Damask

Damask

A linen, cotton, rayon, or silk fabric with a reversible jacquard weave. Damasks are woven on a jacquard loom using predominantly monotone fibers and a combination of weaving techniques most commonly satin and twill variants creating a tone on tone pattern that is produced by the contrast of matte and reflective surfaces. Prior to the invention of the jacquard loom in the early 1800s, damasks were woven by hand and considered a luxury fabric, but the loom's ability to produce bulk yardage allowed for more widespread access to damask fabrics within middle-class households in the 19th Century.
