Before you decide which style is right for you, let's look back at the history of interior design. Let's make an emotional connection or at least an interest in a particular style. They say everyone has a story to tell and so does interior design. Interior design began in the stone age when cavemen began to draw pictures on their interior walls, each person telling their own story. Ancient Egypt and Rome had a deep interest in their interiors as well, especially in architectural design.
There is also a variety of materials that are used which range from marble and stone apart from the usual wood and fabric. You will find that there is a lot of emphasis on decoration and elaborate designs on the furniture flaunting the French style.
Now, let's shift our focus to English furniture styles. As we said before, usually dominant styles were named after monarchs. We see this in the Queen Anne, William and Mary or English Georgian (after King George) styles. However, during the mid 1700's there was a quiet revolution in design that changed how the furniture styles were named. They now were named after the designer.
Then next was the space age trend. This included more of plastic that was molded and other materials that were synthetic. The choice of color was mostly white for the furniture with different colored floor and cushion options.
How did history inspire furniture designs? Back in the early 1400's to the 1700's, furniture styles were influenced by political powers. In fact, it was the dominant countries in Europe that had the biggest effect on the furniture styles of that era. Many of the popular furniture styles were either named after that period, region or monarch of the dominant country.
