Additional Information

Style: Empire (1804-1815)

Decorative style of the furniture that is affirmed under the Empire of Napoleon Bonaparte, that is, between 1799, the year of his election as consul, and 1815, the year of his definitive defeat. It has many elements of continuity with the previous Direttorio style, in the more general Neoclassical climate, which derived from the study of classical antiquity the forms and models to be inspired in the creation of the furniture. The peculiar feature of this style is a greater grandeur and aulity of the furnishings, which had to convey the grandeur of the French nation to the world, hence the name Empire style. The furniture is characterized by straight, majestic and massive lines, adorned with motifs dear to Napoleon such as bees, eagles, large Ns surrounded by laurel, and, after the Egyptian campaign, many elements taken from Egyptian art. He prefers the flat bronze decorations, often gilded, to the refined carvings of previous years. The typical essence of Empire furniture is mahogany.
