Furniture Style

How do you choose a style of furniture when there are so many styles to choose from? One way is to find your favorite furniture style. What makes you feel comfortable, reflects your lifestyle and connects you with the emotional level.

Before you decide what style is best for you, let’s take a look back at the history of interior design. Let’s make an emotional connection or at least be interested in a particular style. They say that everyone has an issue to discuss as well as the internal structure. Interior design began in the stone age when cave dwellers began painting pictures on their interior walls, each telling his own story. Ancient Egypt and Rome were keenly interested in their own interior, especially in the construction of buildings.

How did history inspire furniture designs? Back in the early 1400's and 1700's, furniture styles were influenced by political power. In fact, it was the ruling European powers that exerted the greatest influence on furniture styles of that era. Many popular styles of furniture were named at that time, region or king of the ruling world.

When Spain and Italy ruled, the style of furniture was renamed the Mediterranean (Renaissance), and each country's style reflected its culture. Then, when the power shifted to France, prominent styles were invented by the emperors: the Louis XIV style (Baroque), the Louis XV style (Rococo) and the Louis XVI style (Neoclassical). When Napoleon took power in France the styles of the time were the Directoire and the French Empire.

Now, let’s shift our focus to English furniture styles. As we have seen, the dominant style of governing was invented by the emperors. We see this in Queen Anne, William and Mary or the Georgian English (after King George) styles. During the 1700's, however, there was a dramatic change in design that changed the way furniture styles were developed. Now they are named after the designer.

During the Georgian period, one of the most famous cabinet builders, Thomas Chippendale, began his career. Cabinet builders were skilled at making beautiful furniture, which we can call high quality. The interesting thing about Chippendale is that he was not a composer. Instead, he took beautiful designs from other countries and adapted them to his style. He was greatly influenced by the French Rococo, Chinese and Gothic styles. He is best known for his great chair designs and because of these classic designs his name lives on forever.

In the mid-1700's, two brothers, Robert and James Adam, were studying architecture in Italy. It was during this time that the ruins of Pompeii were discovered. Pompeii was a Roman city that was buried in a volcanic eruption in 79 AD. This discovery was a turning point in interior design. Many Greek and Roman artifacts were discovered. The discovery was made while Adam's siblings were studying architecture, at which point the French style Louis XVI was in vogue. Suddenly there was an ancient revival in interior design, especially in France and England.

In France, Louis XVI's furniture style is known as neo-classical. In England, when Adam's brothers were designing furniture, the style became known as the Georgian Background or Classical Revival style. Adam's siblings were architects in England and were inspired by the Roman era. Because Adam's brothers were architects, they not only designed furniture, but they also designed complete rooms down to the last detail and used many Roman and Greek elements in their designs. Those furniture styles are rich and beautiful in design and are considered timeless.

Some of England's most famous cabinet makers were George Hepplewhite and Thomas Sheraton. Hepplewhite found its inspiration in the neo-classical Louis XVI style and the classic revival style of my brother Adam. Hepplewhite took these styles and injected his ideas. He is best known for his rear seats, front asses, straight legs and a curved back. Sheraton's design style is still known for its beauty and grace. He is best known as the "Apostle of The Straight Line" and is best known for his lyre rear seats. Sheraton has inspired all of the above.

As you can see, the history of furniture design came about through inspiration, political power and the human desire to make our homes more beautiful, even when they live in a cave.

So, how do you decide which style of furniture is best for you? Here are some ideas. Is your lifestyle organized or uncommon? Are you a little more or less fun? How much do you want to invest? Is your room big or small?

If you are a traditional student but also like modern styles, you may be interested in the style of transformation. The pieces of furniture have curved elements of traditional style and clean lines of modern style. If you and your significant other as two different styles, you can decide on an eclectic style. This is where you combine two different styles within a room. By choosing a style in which everything in the house works together, you are actually creating harmony. And where there is harmony, there is peace and comfort. It will give a good feeling in the room because everything will work together. I wish you great peace and comfort in your home. May you find a piece of furniture that works well, is beautiful and reflects your personality. Happy decoration. :-)
