This style was ornate and used light colors, asymmetrical designs, curves, and gold.Rococo, less commonly roccoco, or "Late Baroque", is an 18th-century artistic movement and style, affecting many aspects of the arts including painting, sculpture, architecture, interior design, decoration, literature, music, and theatre. It developed in the early 18th century in Paris, France as a reaction against the grandeur, symmetry, and strict regulations of the Baroque, especially of the Palace of Versailles. Rococo artists and architects used a more jocular, florid, and graceful approach to the Baroque. Unlike the political Baroque, the Rococo had playful and witty themes. Our collection of Rococo style hardware reflects this joyous time.
