Often described as “dramatic”, this style was very popular with the Catholic Church because it was ideally suited to religious themes. Baroque appears for the first time in Rome, Italy, around 1600 before invading all of Europe and all branches of art: applied arts, literature, music, architecture, painting. As soon as he appears, he knows a great success. The term “baroque” comes from the Portuguese “barroco” and denotes a stone in imperfect form.
The very first appearance of elements of style, we find in the work of the famous Italian painter Michelangelo. This interior style is recognizable by the richness of its ornamentation, the opulence of materials and colors, and the taste for colossal and triumph. There are several sub-currents: monumental, classical and late baroque. For a long time, this style of design was only reserved for the aristocracy. It was also a way to impress visitors and to unravel its richness through grandiose decoration and landscaping. It is in Germany that Baroque architecture has the greatest success. It is also here that the current will turn into a “Rococo” style.

The armchairs and sofas are very big and soft, always decorated with cushions with detailed pattern. The decoration is rich and majestic. Often the walls are decorated with large paintings and mirrors with gilded or silver wood frames. The luminaries are as grandiose as can be seen in the example below:

How does one identify a baroque style furniture? Often the furniture is gilded or decorated with laces and noble materials. The dominant colors are often: shiny black, silver or gold, red and purple. Formerly reserved for the aristocracy, nowadays it is quite possible to find furniture of the style at an affordable price. Many companies make tables, armchairs and sofas that mimic the Baroque style, but are made from materials and less expensive materials. Industrialization has helped to democratize this style of design. The paradox is that classical baroque is inherently incompatible with mass industrial production. He sees himself as exclusive.
