Additional Information

Style: Charles X (1824-1830)

Referring to a very short period, the denomination of style Carlo X is however significant because it allows to detect some specific elements of the taste of the time.
It can be considered the last phase of the stylistic research of the Restoration, in which bourgeois requests and needs are accepted, and opens up to a taste for the Gothic.
Characterized by wavy and wavy lines, which oppose the more squared ones of the Empire, it mainly uses light woods with darker threads and very few metallic applications.

Age: XIX Century - from 1801 to 1900

Main essence:

Mahogany

It is one of the most precious and sought-after woods in cabinet making. It was discovered in Central America around 1600 and began to be imported to England in the 1700s. Much appreciated for its hardness and indestructibility, it became widespread following the blocking of walnut exports from France in 1720 and the consequent elimination of English import duties on mahogany from the colonies in America and India. The most valuable version comes from Cuba, but it became very expensive. At the end of the 18th century it began to be used also in France in Louis XVI, Directory and Empire furniture, its diffusion declined starting from when Napoleon, in 1810, forbade its import. It was generally used in the manufacture of elegant furniture, due to its characteristics and beautiful grain.

Poplar

Essence considered "poor", it is a white wood, with yellowish or greyish shades, light and tender, which is easily damaged. It is used for rustic furniture or in the construction of furniture. The most valuable use it has had in the history of furniture is in Germany, in the 19th century, for veneers and inlays in the Biedermeier period.
