Empire

The Empire style originated in France, where it flourished in the early 19th Century under the rule of Emperor Napoleon I – after whom the stylistic movement is named. Indeed, the style was intended to be a visual glorification of Napoleon’s rule and the French state. A form of Neoclassical style design, the Empire style drew upon the opulence of Imperial Rome, and is characterised by its florid motifs and decorative detailing. The Empire style influenced all aspects of French decorative and visual arts – particularly the design of furniture and architecture – and soon became popular across Europe and in the United States.
