Furnishing and innovation

The furniture used to furnish the houses of wealthy families followed the fashion of the time.
Louis XV style spread between 1720 and 1760 and was a revolution in furnishing that reflected the luxurious and refined lifestyle of the French nobility.
It was a period of great innovation in woodworking techniques.
There was a preference for slender, light and highly decorated structures inspired by the Italian and German Rococo.
