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.

Acanthus

Acanthus

Acanthus, also called Bear’s Breeches, is a stylized leaf that is native to the Mediterranean. The acanthus leaf motif was first used in classic Greek and Roman architecture, specifically in the design of Corinthian columns and pillars. Today, the acanthus symbolizes longevity and immortality of the soul.

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.
