The Louis XV style was initially a characteristic style of seating, which later influenced all the arts of its time. This style, which draws part of its inspiration from nature, is characterized by its lightness and a search for privacy and comfort. Succeeding the Regency style, the Louis XV style developed mainly in the second quarter of the 18th century.
