The Louis Philippe style developed in France in the mid-nineteenth century, is characterized by solid forms and refined decoration and aims to enhance the practicality and functionality of furniture, whose forms are softened with rounded corners and rounded elements. Furniture produced in the Louis Philippe style introduces a wide variety of embellishments reminiscent of various eras: the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the Second Empire, in each style something is taken and reworked according to the taste of the time.
