Usually, neoclassical furniture are rather symmetrical. In an interior of such a theme, you can expect to see dark wood furniture, embellished ornaments, stone and marble floors and even Persian carpets. Fabrics also play an important role in this style, they are often more luxurious than ostentatious, such as damask silk, brocade, linen, and, of course, velvet.

When it comes to decorative accessories, objects such as urns, Wedgwood china, pottery and statues are often placed above furniture in order to further emphasize a luxurious ambience. Furthermore, neoclassical interiors feature large mirrors, astounding flower decor and artwork as well as decorative moldings which adorn the walls and ceilings.
