The styles associated with the reigns of Louis XVIII (1815-1824) and Charles X (1824-1830) are largely in line with the earlier Empire furniture although they are seen by many as a decline into decadence.

A softer version of the Empire style came into vogue at this time in the early 19th century in France. While cabinetmakers continued to employ the strong geometrical patterns of the Empire period they also added a some amount of whimsy and fantasy in their designs. Musical instruments were carved into the legs of small tables and desks. Woods were lighter in both color and density and the art of marquetry returned with decorative flowers, garlands and rosettes, and detailing that highlighted the architecture and geometry of furniture.

Louis Philippe Style

The Louis Philippe (1830-1848) style in France followed the same general pattern as the furniture of the French Restoration but perhaps with more emphasis on comfort and a darkening of tone.

Another notable fashion in the Louis Philippe furniture period was the "style a la cathedrale" which came to prominence around 1825.

A great number of revival styles competed with one another including Renaissance revival and Henri II furniture, reproduction Boulle furniture of the baroque period, and revivals in rococo and neoclassic Louis XVI furniture. Info source: www.furniturestyles.net

The era of Louis Napoleon (1848-1870), Emperor of the French, is known as the Second Empire and constitutes the peak of the popularity of reproduction furniture much as occurred in late Victorian England. Info source: www.furniturestyles.net
