One trend that started in interior furniture during this time was the 'matched look'. Every piece of furniture in a room had to be matching and well coordinated. This is the time when the furniture sets for different rooms came into vogue. The sets were mostly in wood that was bright and light and the look adopted was modern and sleek. Buying a bedroom set that was readily adopted by other previously purchased furniture became a hot favorite for people buying new homes. The sets usually included a double bed, two night tables on either side and/or a dressing table that was pre-fitted with a mirror.
"In retrospect, it was the most important school since Louis XIV had codified art in the Institut de France and Napoleon I had united art and science in the Polytechnique."
The antique furniture style follows the time period between the two wars - the revolutionary one and the civil war. Therefore this style of furniture is based more on a utilitarian and practical note. In the rustic style there is more usage of materials found in nature and the influence comes from the culture and the region it has originated from.
