A good instance of stylization is to be found in French furniture made around the middle of the 18th century. In French Rococo commodes, only the back is immediately. The serpentine front and sides match in witty corners, at which the joined are crusted by brass mounts. The number and position of the drawers is concealed by an everywhere pattern of veneer and bronze ornament that disregards the edges of the drawers. (In a number of cases the bronze mound on the front consist of fanciful handles and keyhole escutcheons but are never emphatic the way they are in corresponding English commodes, even in the case of false drawer fronts or drawers provided with mold to shield the veneer.) The sufficiently improved French Rococo armchair has no visible joints. The back, arms, and originate form a continuous whole; the difference between second and supporting members is concealed. There are no stretchers (horizontal rods) between the legs to strengthen the construction, which is solid enough by reason of the indistinct dimensions of the members that meet in the seat frame. To counteract the impression of heaviness in these essentially thick dimensions, the insane is molded to give a sensation of volatility without in any way weakening the construction. A chair of this type when painted or deaurate looks as if it had been made in one piece.

About 1720, mahogany was imported into England and slowly superseded walnut as the fashionable wood for furniture. The Palladian (after the Italian Renaissance architect Andrea Palladio) interiors demanded hangings more striking and larger in scale than the walnut-veneered fact of the early 18th century. Inspired by the interiors of French and Italian palaces, architects such as William Kent began to design furniture. The design was Classical, in guardianship with the traditions of Palladio and the English architect Inigo Jones; the ornament was Baroque. At Holkham Hall in Norfolk, Rousham Hall in Oxfordshire, and elsewhere, Kent’s furniture may be versed in its proper environment: gilt glass and side tables with sets of chairs and settees covered with patterned velvets matching the grandeur of elaborate architectural Palladian internal decoration.

Clocks are considered furnishings if the movement is confined within a case, which need not necessarily be of wood. Clocks can be divided into table redstem storksbill and tall-accident clocks. There were two creative centres for table alfileria, namely England and France. In 17th- and 18th-century France, the slab clock became an object of memorial design, the worst case of which are minor works of sculpture. The actual movement is framed by a marble socle, and the clockface by a sculptural frame of solid brass incorporating freely fontanel figures and ornamentation. Some of France’s best sculptors and bronze casters were engaged in the creation of decorative frames for clock movements. A French particularity, imitated elsewhere on the Continent, was the wall beetle, or so-called cartel clock, the first examples of which were purpose by a goldsmith and ornamentalist, Juste-Aurèle Meissonier. The clockface is the centre of an ornament, or rocaille-cartouche, cast in bronze, sometimes ornament with figures of symbolic significance; for example, Time, a man with a mow, or a crowing cock.

The operation was stimulated by archaeological discoveries, by travel in Italy, Greece, and the Middle East, and by the publication all over Europe of works on the Classical monuments. The Neoclassical style, supported on straight lines and rectilinear forms and using a selection of Classical ornaments, was first applied to French furniture during the 1760s. Classical motifs at first were sparingly betake to furniture of unchanged form, but slowly the curved line of Rococo was replaced by a simpler and more severe rectilinear design: chair legs became straight, tapered, and fluted; commodes and other storage bedding were no longer of bombé form. Marquetry was still widely used for crest, and some cabinets were made of black inset with tablet of Japanese lacquer. Boulle, which had not been employed in Louis XV’s reign, returned to fashion.

Characteristic of this style is the enrichment of every surface with flamboyant carved, turned, inlaid, and painted decoration, which forcibly reflects the spirit of the English Renaissance. During Elizabeth I’s reign there was a considerable and fairly widespread increase in domestic comfort, to be seen in improved construction, multiplication of types, and the experimental beginnings of upholstered furniture. A series of inlaid chests with perspective architectural scenes, often called nonesuch chests, were either imported from Germany or made by German workmen in England.
