  • (Empire st.) - Neo-Classical in style, it was inspired by the decorative motifs and characteristics of Greco-Roman models, characterized as noble and massive. Mahogany, Rosewood, and Ebony were the preferred woods. Brass or gilt mounts in the form of swags, festoons, laurel wreaths, torches, and mythological creatures were used. Also common were the Napoleonic emblems of the bee, the crown, and the letter "N".
