Baroque and Rococo style furniture in China
First, let's clarify the terminology of the Baroque and Rococo styles; what is the difference between them, imperceptibly erased by the beginning of the 21st century. Baroque is a style that originated in the early 17-18 centuries in Italy, and from there became popular in European countries. Initially, the idea of the baroque was to evoke awe among believers, to show the greatness of God and the insignificance of man in comparison with heaven. From the many cathedrals under construction, the style of Baroque gradually moved to the houses of wealthy citizens.
Baroque exaggerates reality, adding pathos and creates the drama, the tension, the grandeur. Baroque is a symbol of strength and confidence. Enormous spaces, an abundance of details on pieces of furniture, gold, stucco, brocade, carved ceilings. Baroque is the style of palaces and huge residences. In a modern world, it is very difficult to recreate the atmosphere of the canonical baroque because of the changed cultural background and the required vast spaces. However, the thoughtful addition of baroque elements in combination with other styles such as European classics or art deco, can perfectly fit into the interior of a modern home.
The Rococo style originated in France, in Paris, at the end of the 18th century. This was because of the death of Louis XIV, “The Sun King”, who is remembered in history by the phrase “The State is me”. The monarch preferred to keep all his nobles in palaces, and after his death, the French aristocrats returned to their family estates, which they decorated according to their own taste. The Rococo style in the interior is an elegant, lightweight continuation of the Baroque. The new style - Rococo was no longer palatial, less solemn and softer and more feminine.
It may seem that Baroque and Rococo styled furniture is no different. In both styles we can see an abundance of complex shapes and patterns, where the furniture is decorated with floral patterns, chairs and tables have graceful legs. However, Rococo furniture is thinner, lighter, more feminine, in lighter shades.
Baroque is the contrast, the appeal, dark saturated colours; rococo is light colours, sophistication, grace, lightness, smooth flow of shapes. Both styles are not so common in modern life, but they leave no one indifferent. Baroque and rococo either are someone's favourite or loathed styles.
