Seventeenth-century objets d'art and furniture

Architecture was the main source of inspiration for the creation of seventeenth-century antiques and furniture. Inspired by the work of architects, cabinetmakers and oramentalists favoured the utilitarian over aesthetics. The designs are voluminous and heavy. The influences from Italy and Flanders gave the furniture a unique appearance, combining restraint and originality. Each region used local woods: oak, walnut, and pine.

Seventeenth-century antiques, objets d'art, and furniture benefitted from significant developments in manufacturing techniques. Veneered wood and marquetry was introduced. Earthenware, silversmithing, goldsmithing, and glassmaking evolved significantly. The ornamental arts became increasingly inventive to attract a clientele in quest of renewal and absolute refinement.
