Louis XVI

This style really began in the second part of the reign of Louis XV and expanded over the entire reign of Louis XVI. The origins of his style go back to the ruins of Pompeii and the Greco-Roman art, during this time archaeological sites were visited by architects that brought back new designs. The revelation of Greek art around 1760 was critical in the development of this style. Louis XVI decoration followed the influence of two writers and thinkers of the time: Diderot and Rousseau, the first one brought simplicity and sensibility and the second one concentrated in the love of nature and the return to a simple life.

Rustic motifs like: land working utensils, baskets with flowers, hearts and arrows, ribbons, garlands, with leaves and with flowers, musical instruments, scientific instruments, oval shaped medallions, fire torches mixed with elements of antiquity like: beaded, rais-de Coeur, Greek friezes and reed and ribbon details. This style is a mix of archaic and naturalistic motifs as well as sentimental attributes, which account for its uniqueness and charm.

1The Italian renaissance Style

1 We 222 consider contemporary all styles developed during the 20th. century as a way to carry on some historical aesthetic in a subtle way, Hence our Haussman-Directory collection reflects a neo-French look. In the same way, our Early 20th Century collection reflects the contemporary crave for federal American simplicity.

Some other contemporary collections like Patagonia take on a more romantic approach into primitive forms. The Spanish wrought iron series tries to bring back Spanish colonial times into todays world searching for a new identity.

Our gothic collection becomes a modern interpretation of gothic architecture. Our stone and crystal collections are some of Fersas contributions to the development of our trade into the 21st. century.

Fersa continues to elaborate new designs along with preserving period styles. Our factory and a professional team of designers present a new collection every year as a continous effort in the development of this ancient trade.
