Additional Information

Style: Restoration (1815-1830)

Starting from the Congress of Vienna in 1815, the arts also expressed the return to the monarchical order and the desire for order after the war years.
The stylistic features are an evolution of the Empire style, but with simpler lines and stripped of the typical symbols of the Napoleonic period.
There is greater attention to the practicality of furniture and domestic use.

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.
