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:

Beech

It is a semi-hard wood which, unfortunately, is easily wormed, therefore it is considered poor. Due to its light but variegated shades, from blond to reddish, it was nevertheless appreciated by French cabinetmakers. It was mainly used for furniture structures or, as an alternative to walnut, by provincial English furniture makers for popular works, mostly in the 1700s. The noblest use is due to Thonèt, who applied the steam bending of the beech in the making of the furniture, in particular for the chairs that took his name.

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.
