Some styles of antique furniture can look dated and out of keeping with the contempory interior. However there is nothing new in this: the elaborate carving and sumptuous uphostery of the late 17th and 18th.centuries gave way to the clean lines of the neo-classical style. Then the neo-classical was in turn superseded by the ostentation and worked detail of the Victorian period which was then swept away by the plain surfaces of the Art Deco and modernist movements.
