French Design Origin:
During the reign of Louis XV, interior decoration, including frame design, came to the forefront. The styles of the time reflected more curves and circles replicating scrollwork and swags used in interior design and artwork. When Louis XVI became King in 1774, his reign marked a return to the classics – the Neoclassical period. Designs during this time became simpler, with straighter lines and more symmetry; colours used were lighter in tone, and ornamentation became more delicate.
The French style frames, authentically replicate the exquisite patterns and ornamentations of these various times. The elegant gilding and soft patinas on these frames come together to bring you fine finished corner frames with French style.
