  • Style History

    Regence Style, 1700-1730:

    Regence is best understood not as a style, but as a state of mind. It marked a turn toward intimacy, comfort, distraction and pleasure. Regence is a transitional style that resulted in greater comfort, and forms more elegant and agreeable to the eye. Lines had a new fluidity whilst retaining their symmetry. Charles Cressent, the master cabinetmaker, was to the Regence period what Boulle had been under Louis XIV.

     

    Ornament: Moldings, thinner and less assertive than under Louis XIV, are in low relief. Smiling heads of fauns and women were often used and the lion's head disappeared. Scallop shells were very characteristic. Bat wings and animals, such as the monkey were seen. Motifs of exotic origin, such as pagodas, peacock feathers, parsols and exotic flowers were judiciously used.
