Additional Information

Style: Neoclassical (1765-1790)

This historical period includes a properly definable first phase of the Louis XVI style.
Only later, with the maturation of archaeological fashions, a new vision of the civilization of furniture is formulated and codified, now fully ascribable to the Neoclassical style.
In fact, both trends coexist in unison until the last years of the eighteenth century.
In the field of cabinet making, the Direttorio, Retour d'Egypte, Consolare and Impero styles also fall within the neoclassical era.

Main essence:

Fir

Soft coniferous wood, used for rustic furniture or to build the chest, that is the structure, of furniture then veneered in more precious woods. It has been used since ancient times, its most valuable use is, in the Spruce variant, in the inlays of French antique furniture of the '700 . The spruce, more typical of northern Europe, in Italy grows mainly in the Eastern Alps at altitudes above 1300 m. The noblest use of this essence was in the construction of violins, guitars and cellos: Stradivari himself produced his famous violins with this wood.

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.

Satinwood

With the name silk wood, or bois de satin , or satinwood we identify some light woods, whose surface is shiny and silky, that is similar to silk, and for this reason they are very precious. They are exotic woods, which come either from the East Indies, with shades towards yellow-gold, or from the Western ones, with more red shades. They were first used in veneers, alongside darker woods, and, starting from 1820, also to build entire elegant furniture.
