Rococo: Baroque Reborn

Among the many schools of interior design, the rococo style can give a home a touch of elegance mixed with spontaneity. Check out Groupon’s guide to the ways rococo might transform your home.

King Louis XIV was known for his lavishness, and his chef d'œuvre, the Palace of Versailles, was no exception. Its interiors were designed with the grandeur of the baroque style, a pantheon of order and elegance filled with gold leaf ornamentation, symmetry, and square moldings. In a deliberate counterpoint to such baroque influences, designers sparked the rococo movement, a new style of interior detailing that borrowed baroque elements while eschewing its rigid structure. Derived from the French word rocaille, which referred to a design style that incorporated shells and other small stones, rococo seems to reflect the asymmetrical yet ornamental elegance of seashells, designed as they are by style-savvy hermit crabs. These days, modern interior designers can give interiors the same kind of elegant-yet-whimsical feel using either antiques or modern furnishings inspired by classic rococo.

The hallmarks of rococo include the use of pastels and whites in rooms, along with lots of gold touches in everything from ornaments to sculpture and picture frames. Designs also heavily incorporate mirrors, which add dimension and space to otherwise cramped quarters. Overhead, ceiling moldings can imitate elaborate scrollwork and flowers, or rooms may overflow with ornate furniture such as tufted sofas and side tables with carved, curved feet. Plenty of modern furniture designers have been inspired by the period, often keeping the design sensibility but replacing the pastels with bright colors, mustardy yellows, or striking black-and-white motifs. Some interior designers opt to use antique carved furniture that’s been reupholstered with modern fabrics or graphic prints, combining the classic rococo look with fresh touches to wake them up.
