Louis XV Furniture
The Louis XV style rose to popularity during the reign of King Louis XV. He began to change the stylings around him from the Louis XIV era, which were large and lavish, to more small items designed for comfort and elegance. This style is still relevant and highly sought after today.
A piece styled from the Louis XV era will typically feature these characteristics:
- Gently curved legs
- Intricate carvings featuring flowers and nature themes
- Comfortable padded seats and chair backs
- Inlaid wood, metal, mother-of-pearl and ivory
- Delicate pictures created with various wooden textures and colours
- High polish finishes
The Louis XV style focuses primarily on combining usefulness, practicality and elegance to create functional yet beautiful pieces. They may be deliberately asymmetrical and often come across as delicate when compared to pieces in the styles previous.
