Empire style furniture had an imposing character and was meant to impress. Pieces were often large in dimension and with plenty of decorative elements. The pieces had a rigid layout and featured basic geometric forms, often with flat surfaces and sharp corners. The compositions were symmetrical. The inspiration for decorative elements came mostly from the Classical World and war. Gods and Goddesses and mythical beasts are often featured. Laurel leaves and trophies, symbols of victory and glory, were often widely used.
Founded in 1794, Rud. Ibach Sohn was a piano manufacturer in Barmen, Rhineland, Germany.
