Empire

During the Napoleonic campaigns of the 19th century, Neo-classical furniture took on an Egyptian inspiration with classical details appearing in the form of the lyre, paw foot and acanthus motif.

In England the style is known as Regency, the Empire in France, and Biedermeier in Germany. The Biedermeier style was a slight variation on the late neo-classic style more restrained and less ornate than the English or French counterparts. Carving as well as intricate wood inlay patterns were used for decoration.

Woods were primarily rosewood and mahogany with gilt accents and brass ormolu details.

Hardware was visible taking on strict geometric shapes fashioned from gilt brass.
