Rococo was an aesthetic movement in the fine and decorative arts that found its inspiration in nature and fostered an overall lightness and delicacy of form, construction and ornament in interior design.

Though greatly influenced by trends in Italy and Germany, Rococo is often called Louis XV-style — the movement having reached its best expression during that opulent French king’s reign. The term “rococo” is thought to be a portmanteau of the French words rocaille and coquilles—“rock” and “shells”—organic motifs frequently used in architecture and design of the style.
