Early Modern Interior Design

Over the course of the early modern period, interior spaces became more and more elaborate for Europe's wealthiest families. The dominant style represented in this collection of images is the European baroque of the 16th and early 17th centuries, which was characterized by the frequent use of foliage motifs, crests or initials, and putti. The style was also strongly influenced by the symmetry and straight lines of classical architecture and decoration. Later in the period, rococo design would dispense with these conventions and embrace asymmetry and increased ornamentation.
