The Baroque Baroque furniture can be recognized by its intricate and elaborate decorations. The Baroque is a period from the 17th century until the beginning of the 18th century. In Denmark the Baroque style reigned from around 1640 to 1730. The Baroque is known for its magnificent, self-confident, compact and ostentatious style. It originated from Italy where the Catholic Church sought to highlight its overwhelming power and sovereignty.The construction in Baroque is always strictly symmetrical. This is best described from architecture, having a strong emphasis on the building's central, protruding section having particularly opulent decorations and being taller than the rest of the construction.
