Named for George IV’s “regency” (1811-1820), the Regency style dominated English taste in furniture between the years 1800 and 1830. In furniture design it represents the peak of Neo-classical style, drawing faithfully from classical precedents in ancient Greek and Roman furniture. It has analogies with Georgian Styles and the Empire style in France which started this desire to revive the grandeur of Rome. It is typified by embellished adornments and extravagant detailing, use of marquetry and inlays and neoclassical motifs such as acanthus and anthemion leaves.
