The glorious ancient Greek and Roman Empires influenced the French Empire style during the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte.
Jacob Desmalter supplied furniture to the Emperor Napoleon for the Chateau de Malmaison, the Tuileries Palace and other imperial residences.
The Empire style was therefore adopted in courts throughout Europe, especially in Russia.
