  • (Napoleon III Period) - Also known as 2nd Empire style, this highly eclectic style used many elements from various historical periods and revolutionized the use of more contemporary materials while focusing on comfort and functionality. Chairs and settees were ornately upholstered with the use of tassels, fringe, and opulent fabrics. Throughout this time the mechanics of chairs would be entirely concealed by upholstery and decorative elements, like the Crapaud armchair. Upholstered ottomans appeared with the creation of furniture like “le confident” or the two-person chair. Black Lacquer, Polychrome, and rattan were being used for the first time in European furniture.
