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.

Finial

Finial

An ornamental, terminating piece that extends vertically from the apex of a design. In architecture, they are found at the tips of gables or spires, and in furniture, as top ornaments on cabinet corners, posts, or supports. Finial also refers to the decorative metal piece used to affix lampshades to table and floor lamps. They often take the shape of a ball, flame, flower, acorn, pineapple, or vase.

Andirons

Andirons

Andirons are bracket supports that hold logs in fireplaces, allowing air to circulate under the firewood for better burning and reduced smoke. Though originally made of cast iron, the Renaissance brought increasingly decorative styles in brass, bronze, and silver. From the 18th century on, andirons were commonly used as decorative objects since many fireplaces had built in metal grates to hold firewood.

Festoon

Festoon

A festoon is a Renaissance and Neoclassical motif of a wreath or garland hung from two points. In architecture, festoons typically depict flowers, leaves, ribbons, or fruit.
