Empire style furniture, from which this mirror draws inspiration, emerged in the early 19th century, influenced by the aesthetics of Ancient Greece and Rome, as well as British and French empire design. Napoleon's rule during the First French Empire saw a surge in this style, characterized by a mix of restraint and embellishment.

Typical elements of Empire style furniture include columns with rope-twist carvings, animal-paw feet, anthemion, stars, and also acanthus-leaf ornamentation. These motifs are often combined with gilding, lending a sense of grandeur and authority to the furniture. This Empire Style Giltwood Console Mirror encapsulates these design principles, offering a sophisticated and historically inspired addition to any home.
