  • Louis XV Period Read More
  • (Louis XV Period) - Also known as Louis Quinze or Rocaille, this style followed the traditions of French décor, until it took on a life and look of its own with decorations and motifs becoming more exuberant. The style was heavily influenced by the mistress of Louis XV, Madame de Pompadour, and marked the beginning of the Rococo movement. In his old age, from 1750 – 1774, Louis XV showed more signs of constraint in his design style and this period showed more signs of French Neoclassicism.
