Neo Classical Furniture Style
Compilation Of Distinctive Geometrical Shapes
Originating in the late 18th Century, Neo Classical design is inspired by the architecture of Ancient Greece and Rome. Neo Classical furniture is a compilation of distinctive geometrical shapes; rounds, arches, rectangles and curves.
Neo Classical furniture is characterised by restrained, symmetrical design and tends to be rectangular. Architectural details and motifs are frequently utilised for decoration. The furniture legs are often turned and fluted in reference to classical architectural columns.
Upholstered and gilded chairs and sofas resemble thrones and exemplify a certain Napoleonic grandeur. Classical carved urns enlivened and provided structure for garden layouts.
Neo-classicism provides a grand statement with an element of restraint, a perennial favourite throughout history.
Neo Classical furniture, classical style in a grand statement.
