Neo style

Neo styles are the common term for the nineteenth century’s imitation styles, which were based on the shapes and decorative elements of older style epochs. Industrial development brought with it the mass production of furniture and objects; never before had the offering been so great. Neo-Gothic is the oldest of the neo styles, while Neo-Rococo, with its mahogany furniture and rich sculpted ornamentation, was the most popular. The many different styles came one after the next, and at the end of the period, upholstered styles appeared, presenting a bountiful variety of textiles and fully upholstered furniture.
