The First French Empire is a period marked by the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte from 1804 to 1815.
The craftsmen were invited to create majestic works to symbolise imperial power. For this purpose, they took up Egyptian or Greco-Roman motifs and adapted them to furniture.
To these are added imperial and warlike motifs. These include the crown, the imperial eagle, the bee, the star, the spear...
Mahogany, walnut, maple, elm and ash are representative woods of this style.
