Regency furniture was strongly influenced by clean lines and was inspired from the ancient Greek and Roman styles.

The Regency style tends to have gilded and hand carved furniture with brass, inlays and trim.  The forms and detailed elements are emphasized and exaggerated and also are influenced from Egyptian, Oriental and medieval Gothic styles.
Pictured is a characteristic Regency sofa in rosewood veneer, one of the favorite featured materials used during the Regency period. There  are other pieces such as the Spoon back chairs, regency stools, extension tables and the gilt-decorated Greek style couch that influence modern, contemporary interior design.
