Details

The French Regency, or Régence period (1715 - 1730), roughly corresponded to the years when Louis XV was still a youth and had not yet ascended to the throne. France was instead governed by a temporary prince regent. The Régence style is characterized by an increased desire for comfort and a growing appreciation for an expanded world view. Witness the padded armchairs and canapes, the use of caning, proliferation of the cabriole leg, use of the symmetrical “C” and “S” shaped scrolling, the shell and acanthus motif, and exotics such as bat wings, monkeys, fauns, and animal-hoofed furniture feet.
