  • (Baroque st.) - An extravagant and heavily ornate style displaying exuberance, and grandeur. Characterized by the abundant use of cupids, cornucopia, and decorative motifs set in curvaceous designs. Baroque was superseded by the Rococo style, beginning in France in the late 1720s, for interiors and the decorative arts, the Baroque style continued to be used in architecture until the advent of Neoclassicism in the later 18th century.
    (Louis XIV Period) - Louis XIV style, also known as French Classicism, was thought of and intended to glorify the Sun King and his reign via the majesty and harmony of its style. Louis XIV's style consisted of three different time periods with French Classicism being the first and under the control of regent Anne of Austria. The second period was under the personal rule of the King and became more classical, ostentatious, and victorious, culminating in the building of the Chateau of Versailles. Later in the second phase of King Louis XIV’s reign, came the invention of marquetry which changed French furniture with the decoration of different colors and woods. Most famous for his creations during this period is André Charles Boulle.
