Additional Information

Style: Louis Philippe (1830-1848)

The Louis Philippe style develops in a context characterized by two main factors: the expansion of the bourgeoisie and the advent of the industrialization of production processes.
This style therefore faces the decline of artisans and the new needs of economy and comfort.
Aesthetically it incorporates elements from the past, especially from the Gothic and the Renaissance, preferring very curved shapes for the seat backs, legs and deer-like feet, with a very rich decoration.
It mainly uses dark woods: ebony, rosewood and mahogany, side by side for contrast with light elements.

Main essence:

Maple

Hard, light wood used for inlays. It grows mainly in Austria, but it is widespread throughout the northern hemisphere, from Japan to North America, passing through China and Europe. It is one of the lightest woods ever, tending to white, it is similar to lime or birch wood. The briar is used in the production of ancient secretaires .

Walnut

Walnut wood comes from the plant whose botanical name is juglans regia , probably originally from the East but very common in Europe. Light or dark brown in color, it is a hard wood with a beautiful grain, widely used in antique furniture. It was the main essence in Italy throughout the Renaissance and later had a good diffusion in Europe, especially in England, until the advent of mahogany. It was used for solid wood furniture and sometimes carvings and inlays, its only big limitation is that it suffers a lot from woodworm. In France it was widely used more than anything else in the provinces. In the second half of the eighteenth century its use decreased significantly because mahogany and other exotic woods were preferred.
