Exclusivity because the piece is made according to the vision of the client, each piece in custom made furniture is unique and exclusively designed for the client. Sometimes the differences may be fairly small, but these small details are what separate one piece of bespoke furniture from the rest.
In 1804, Napoleon Bonaparte had himself anointed and crowned Emperor of France. The furniture style known as Empire is a style of majestic grandeur that Napoleon felt fitting to honor his glory. He considered himself the greatest world ruler since Julius Caesar. The Empire style is the last of the great French styles that widely influenced furniture design throughout the world. During his rule, Napoleon conquered Italy and Egypt. He was overwhelmed by his conquest of these countries. He brought back to France archaeological wonders of Egypt, the long-forgotten ancient empire. He was proud of his conquest of Italy and Egypt and proudly considered himself as the first worthy successor to Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar. Furniture designed in this period was meant to imitate the designs of these great empires. Napoleon commissioned the greatest artist of Europe to create architecture and decoration that would equate the grandeur of Greece, the glory of Rome and the massiveness of Egypt.
The defining feature of this style, though, was that it greatly contradicted the ones that were present at the time, the most predominant one being the American Chippendale. It relied on using really heavy wood and heavy intricate designs, which in some respects, made the furniture item appear overworked and extremely pretentious. Here are some more distinct features of it that helped distinguish its separate identity that has lasted many decades now.
