Glossary of Terms
So you thought Rococo was yet another crazy celeb baby name? Don't worry, Belle is on hand to break it all down for you - after over ten years in the business, we should Rococo.
Art Deco furniture is characterised by its strong lines, bold monochrome designs, geometric motifs and long thin forms which reflected the sleek new age of the machine. This style was typified by the 1925 Paris Exposition of Decorative Arts, and dominated artistic expression throughout the 1920's and 30's, seeing a big resurgence in post-World War II 1960's architecture and design. From New York's Chrysler building to the elegant glass work of Rene Lalique or the pottery of Clarice Cliff, we have many pieces that echo an Art Deco feel. From geometric Art Deco mirrors, typically Art Deco Sunburst design mirrors and Deco-inspired perfume bottles.
The Baroque period was an exciting time for the arts, with many of Europe's finest and lasting architecture, art and musical influences coming into being during this period. Spanning most of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the Baroque period was characterised by a love of drama, movement and sensuality with the likes of architect and sculptor Bernini, painter Peter Paul Rubens and composers JS Bach and Handel typifying the movement. Baroque interiors placed an emphasis on texture and ornate shapes as well as luxurious materials, influences that have inspired Belle's Baroque Furniture ranges.
Colonial style furniture harks back to a time of British Imperialism with a focus on strong, masculine shapes and rich textures. Britain's colonisation of countries across the world from Africa to India and beyond resulted in British expatriates communities whose Colonial homes fused the heavy austerity and dark colours of Victorian England with the more exotic influences of local materials. Animal skin, furs and leathers were widely used, as well as rich mahogany wood. For Colonial inspiration, look no further than our faux crocodile skin chests or arm chairs, or one of our whimsical vintage trunks and suitcases which evoke the romance of far-flung adventure but can double as useful storage or coffee tables.
The leather Chesterfield sofa has become synonymous with British style. The handsome proportions, deep buttoned upholstery, rolled arms and studded trim of the Chesterfield are as essential to the British gentleman as a pair of smart brogues or a tailored tweed jacket. Named after the fourth Earl of Chesterfield, Philip Dormer Stanhope, in the 18th century, the Chesterfield has become a gentleman's club favourite, and a timeless classic for any living room. For a traditional look, take a look at our in vintage leather Chesterfield armchair, or for a more contemporary revamp of this classic design, look at our glamorous velvet upholstered Chesterfield with twinkling crystal buttons.
Contemporary has become a blanket term for anything new and different that reflects modern times. Much of our Contemporary furniture is influenced be the clean lines and blocky shapes of the modernist movement. Many of our pieces, from the clean lines of a glass coffee table, to the strong shapes of our leather arm chairs reflect a Contemporary aesthetic. Contemporary furniture is often associated with a raw, Industrial look using industrial materials like chrome, metal and iron, and this is reflected in many of our contemporary furniture pieces. Contemporary for us often means reworking a classic design with a modern edge, so a traditional antique chest can be reworked in funky stripes or covered in silver leaf to add a quirky style statement.
Echoing the grand curves and intricate detailing of the French Baroque style, Chateau style furniture has a more demure, rustic feel. Using a white painted distressed finish, our Chateau range of furniture has a classic look that invokes the tranquillity of the French countryside. The Chateau Style looks fantastic when upholstered in muted linen, as with our Chateau linen bed or linen upholstered chairs. All the items in our French Chateau style convey a look of understated elegance, its neutral tones, perfect for a restful environment.
This refers to furniture inspired by the 17th century court of Versailles, under the reign of Louis XIV. Often referred to as 'the sun king' for the power and strength of his reign, Louis XIV commissioned the construction of lavish palace of Versailles whose grandeur and opulence became synonymous with the Baroque style of the era. Versailles furniture is characterised by luxurious materials, grandiose proportions and highly ornamented design. Gold Gilt furniture, intricately hand carved beds and headboards, curved shapes: much of our furniture draws inspiration from this fairytale era of art and design.
Originating in eighteenth century Paris, the Rococo style of art, architecture and design followed on from the French Baroque style. The Rococo style is inspired by the gentle curves and nuances of the natural shell, a more delicate and curvaceous feel than its Baroque predecessor. The Rococo colour palette is typically lighter and more playful than the drama of the Baroque, with pastels, neutral whites and golds as the primary colour choices. A celebration of natural, shell-like forms can be seen with many of our Rococo-inspired pieces, such as our intricately hand-carved Rococo mirrors, available in an assortment of colours, or our unusual silver leaf Rococo bedroom chair upholstered in black velvet.
Venice has been renowned for its glassware since the thirteenth century, when the Venetian island of Murano was the thriving centre of Europe's finest glass-blowers. So highly regarded was Venetian glass, that the methods used to make it were closely guarded, with harsh penalties for defecting glass blowers. Venetian glass is characterised by its intricate, delicate design, use of subtle colour and floral ornamentation. Belle Interior's range of Venetian chandeliers, Venetian mirrors and Venetian inspired mirrored furniture will definitely add drama. When the light catches one of our dazzling Venetian chandeliers it'll send a rainbow glimmer throughout your room.
Just as vintage clothing is back in vogue at the moment, so too is vintage furniture. The term Vintage tends to refer not to a particular era, but with our modern fascination with classic shapes and designs. Vintage furniture is often characterised by a distressed, lived in finish - perfect for creating a shabby chic look. We have many vintage style pieces to compliment your look from vintage distressed leather armchairs, wing back chairs and dining chairs to the more classic reclining Eames chair. Or for something a bit more girly to compliment your vintage thrift shop finds, why not look at one of our distressed French style armoires or silver antique style cabinets?
