Our in style furniture
The Louis XV Style eveloped in France during the reign of Louis XV (1720-60) and brought to life a style which favoured light curved lines, decorations in gilded bronze which embellished without weighing the piece down, and inlays of stylized flowers, landscapes and chinoiserie.
The Louis XVI Style, cwhich coincides with the reign of the French sovereign of the same name (1774-92), transmits a taste for symmetry, balance, the use of a wide range of ornaments and curved lines, the rediscovery of decorations inspired by antiquity and, most especially, the repertoire of the Greco-Roman era.
The greatest interpreter of Neoclassicism in the production of furniture in Italy, and specifically Lombardy, was Giuseppe Maggiolini (Parabiago 1738-1814) who achieved exceptional results in terms of inlaying technique, thanks to both his expertise and the quality of his design.
The Empire Style developed during the Napoleonic Era (1804-1815). Empire style furniture is solid and majestic with harmonious, balanced and linear proportions which satisfy the need for simplicity.
