The china cabinet is opulent but not overly adorned, with modest detailing at the top, and swag-shaped drawer pulls. Light and airy sheer draperies are voluminous but not overwhelming. Finally, the chandelier adds a touch of rococo to the space with its leafy shapes and abundant glass ornamentation.
Marquetry does not have to be ornate to convey a sense of Baroque style. A beautiful wooden table that features one wide strip of inlay and lets the grain of the wood be the star also works in a baroque dining room. This luxury dining set pairs such a table with brocade upholstered dining chairs that feature rococo curved legs with the typical embellished feet. The lighting fixture chosen for the dining room can help bump up the level of baroque style, or play it down.
Interestingly the chandelier features Baroque curving arcs that are made from flat, smoky glass. The traditional leafy motif is rendered modern in the leaf-shaped drops that embellish the bottom and are mixed with feminine beads in a nod to the rococo.
Golden details, ornate embellishments furnishings with sinuously curved legs and line, as well as furniture upholstered silks are all hallmarks of these design styles. While Baroque and rococo styles are often confused, Baroque was the origin of this era and the lighter, more graceful Rococo style came at the end of the Baroque period.
