Style: Louis XIII <div>RENAISSANCE REVIVAL: LOUIS XIII STYLE</div><div>As the middle class rose in status and wealth with the advent of the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century, more people were able to afford furniture. This flattening of society in combination with technological advancements created a surge of furniture production. Improved transportation meant a greater variety of wood was available at lower costs. For the first time, furniture became accessible and affordable to the common man. From the 1830s to the end of the 19th century, furniture makers reached back to earlier historical styles, and reinterpreted them with a great deal of creativity and experimentation. Although machines were used to increase speed and productivity, most of the carvings were still done by hand. Consumers were hungry for large, ornate and heavily carved furniture that would impress their friends and family and show off their newly found wealth. The Renaissance Revival style is marked by massive proportions and heavy, ornate carvings. Most furniture was produced in dark oak and walnut. There are actually several sub-styles that fall under the broader Renaissance Revival style and include the Henry II (Henri II) style, Hunting style, Mechelen style, and Louis XIII style.</div><div>When his father, Henry IV (1589 1610) was assassinated, Louis XIII took the French throne at the age of 9 years old. Along with his aide Cardinal Richelieu, Louis XIII is considered to be the first of a series of absolute monarchs that eventually lead to the French Revolution in the 18th century. The Louis XIII style most often refers to large armchairs and is characterized by large arm rests, heavy, turned legs, and often tapestry-style upholstery. The Louis XIII style marks the end of the Renaissance style, which was followed by a shift to the Rococo style. 19th century consumers loved Renaissance Revival pieces based on the earlier Louis XIII style.</div>
