Common furniture style
Let’s take a look at some truly fascinating styles of interior furniture. The first to be discussed is American furniture. In this kind of furniture you will find three main styles and they are the Antique style, the modern style and the Rustic style. Each of them is unique with the European furniture style influencing the Antique styles and the World War II era influencing the modern style of furniture.
The antique furniture style follows the time period between the two wars – the revolutionary one and the civil war. Therefore this style of furniture is based more on a utilitarian and practical note. In the rustic style there is more usage of materials found in nature and the influence comes from the culture and the region it has originated from.
The next is the furniture from Europe which has its origin dating back to many centuries and therefore there is an influence from the English, Italian and the French styles. In the English style wood of many trees like the walnut and the oak are used extensively and the colors of the furniture are natural and dark. On the other hand in the Italian style you will find an influence of the Roman architecture and sculpture.
There is also a variety of materials that are used which range from marble and stone apart from the usual wood and fabric. You will find that there is a lot of emphasis on decoration and elaborate designs on the furniture flaunting the French style.
What is common to note is that the shape taken by the furniture and the designs are adopted from the usual elements that influence the home furniture all over the world. Depending on the century and the era that the furniture was originally made, the style and the patterns across the globe change. This proves the fact that there was a lot of interaction between the countries of the world in terms of trade. This contact between the countries resulted in the give and take of ideas that were later implemented in various forms, including furniture styles.
