The development of this style starts with the reign of Queen Anne of England in 166o, which first followed the influence of Louis the XIV palace at Versailles. Queen Anne’s reign followed by the reign of Georges I created the transition from Baroque times into the English Renaissance era. Around 1758, still under the reign of Georges I, Architect Robert Adam introduced a new style that would change the history of English architecture and interior design.
During this period, we can find an eclectic mix of elements used, from garlands to flowers represented in quite a bold way. This period borrowed inspiration from Oriental European and English colonies. The pieces are less flamboyant than their French neighbors of the time, and portray a well-achieved sense of overall scale and proportion.
