It was in the 15th century when a great deal of consciousness arose in Italy on sculpture, painting, old-fashioned architecture and other forms of delicate arts. In the middle of 1400 and 1650, the rebirth of distinction occurred primarily in Florence and widened in the whole of Rome and Italy. These changes have made a mark in Italian architecture which in turn influenced the now popular Italian furniture.
Italian furniture boasts of designs that are striking, flamboyant, and impressive. Some of its designs are taken from the drawings of conventional Roman architecture and sculpture. The antique decorations were invigorated by the medieval influence which came in the form of acanthus scrolls, shells, dolphins, and other decorations. Intarsia motif and marquetry mirrored interlaced geometrical designs.
