Below we’ve featured 5 Neoclassical chairs that embody the classic architectural design.
The Neoclassical architectural era became popular in America in the 1700 and 1800s. The style was based on their interpretation of styles from Ancient Rome and Greece. Thousands of buildings throughout the United States sprang up around this time. Though originating in Europe, the United States became the largest celebrator of the architectural movement. Not surprisingly, the Neoclassical movement quickly became a symbol of freedom and revolution to the American people of the time.
Above all, neoclassical architecture is generally classified by the grandeur of scale. Many of the spaces feature molding and/ or paneling. Classic columns are often a predominant feature of this time period. Most of the furniture of the time period was made of wood. Neoclassical style is defined as both elegant and timeless. These two words are also used to describe Eustis Chair products. Famous Neoclassical buildings throughout the world include the Monticello in Charlottesville, Altes Museum in Berlin, Somerset House in London, Buckingham Palace in London, and Basilica di San Giovanni in Rome. Of course, America’s very own White House, the Supreme Court, the Thomas Jefferson Memorial, and Low Memorial Library embody Neoclassical architecture as well.
Neoclassical colors are often muted. You will see a variety of creams, whites, greys, and muted greens. From time to time, you will spot colorful accents in the spaces. Often the accents are gold or red. Neoclassical furniture contains simple lines and symmetric features. It is typically made of wood and looks ornamental in nature. Neoclassical furniture often features upholstery.
