The aim of this handbook is to impart a better knowledge of the furniture of old France. French Furniture Under Louis XIV provides excellent insight into the history and characteristics that define the Louis XIV style -simple in design but adorned in sumptuous fabrics. It is in this last quarter of the eighteen century that comfort is born. In short, the manufacture of "bourgeois" furniture suddenly spreads and develops through the whole kingdom. The book has a section of illustrative photos in the rear.Publication Details
