Mari Holzer Furniture, 2017-10-22 22:06:06. The Empire style furniture is massive, in grand scale and very masculine. It has a severe, heavy, masculine look with no carving. The wood carving which is very common in the previous styles of Louis XIV, Louis XV and Louis XVI is generally replaced with wood veneers polished to a high sheen. To equalize the bareness of wood veneer, metal gilts are used to adorn the furniture. A good clue to identifying the Empire style is the vulgar use of ormolu mounts. Ormolus are gilt-metal decorations usually in different decorative motifs. These are usually drawn from antique sources or patriotic inspiration. There are motifs derived from Egyptian archeology. Falcon, sphinxes, cobras, obelisks, winged lions are just some of these Egyptian inspired decorations. Napoleon's fascination with his conquest of Egypt and later on the excavation of ruins by the French Egyptologists created so much interest in everything related to Egypt.

Since making the whole home a retro home may not be such a good idea, a single room is what people are doing nowadays. And it works great as a theme room. Packed with this type of furniture, it is the place you can go to if you want some solace from your routine times. Or, you can call your friends over and have a party with Elvis goading them on. Tell them to come in their turtlenecks and checkered bellbottoms and it will be a party to cherish. And you can even add an arcade center with Super Mario Brothers and Contra on it to really get teleported in those times.

In the seventies, everyone had thick, shag carpeting, and now it's become popular again (as opposed to Berber, the thinnest possible carpet around), only this time it's not in mixed blue and green colors (thank goodness!). And, with the modification of the original bean bag chair that was so popular in the 80s to seat more than one comfortably on plush material or even leather rather than sticky vinyl, you can have your whole home outfitted retro style!Retro Home and Bedroom Furnishings - A Look at the 70's and 80's

In homes with kids and pets, these stains can transform a nice-looking couch into a mottled mess in no time flat. Luckily, leather is easy to clean. Spills wipe up easily, and sticky messes can be cleaned with the help of a damp cloth and mild detergent. The material won't absorb liquid and resists stains as long as it's well maintained.
