|::| The Neo-Louis Style
The Louis styles are found in French furniture design during the whole 19th
century. Resembling the squiggling ornaments and rolling forms of the monarchical
associated furniture between the Renaissance and the French revolution (1789
- 1799) the so called Neo-Louis style is a tribute to the preceding styles,
primarily of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI. Due to the progress of industrialization,
these, sumptuary pieces became affordable for a much lager group of people
in the course of the 19th century. For instance, furniture in the Rococo style
(maybe the most famous Louis style ) was the first choice of middle class
families that were settling in the new suburbs of Paris.
