  • Neo-Classical st. Read More
  • (Neo-Classical st.) - One of the top design styles in modern interiors is Neo-Classical. Developed in the 18th century, artists of this time sought to move away from the abundance of decoration saw in the Rococo style and shift towards a more restrained and moderate style. As a result of this, excessive ornamentation was left behind with the new focus being on symmetry and minimalism. Architectural elements like columns and cornices were now the star of the show and were paired with linear furniture to showcase the beauty of the architecture. The Neo-Classical decorating style is modest and chic, with decorative pieces being strategically placed with moldings and cornices being the finishing touch. Tall walls, large expansive windows, and columns are key features of any Neo-Classical design.

  • KPM - Königliche Porzellan-Manufaktur Berlin, “Royal Porcelain Factory in Berlin.”
    Founded in 1763 by Frederick II of Prussia, who bought the factory from its previous owner, Johann Ernst Gotzkowsky. Frederick II greatly admired the factory’s “white gold,” a type of porcelain so fine and translucent that it closely mirrored the high-quality porcelain made in that period. He invested large sums of money into the company and granted it the use of the royal scepter as its emblem. He also commissioned many KPM porcelain objects to be made in the Rococo style for his palace.
    From the company’s founding in 1763 to the abdication of Emperor William II in 1918, KPM was owned by seven kings and emperors. KPM porcelain made during this period reflects not only the fashions of the time but also Prussian royal taste. Technological advances led to modern modes of production and design, but KPM continued to value craftsmanship and KPM artists devoted time and care to produce unique, handmade objects.
