Biedermeier furniture and interior design are recognized today as the first great flowering of haute bourgeois taste in interior design. Beginning in the early 19th century, these bourgeois ideals in design were pursued by a wide range of society from the Hapsburgs and Hohenzollern rulers to the middle classes, from Middle Europe to Italy. Yet Biedermeier's innate classicism, its lyrical and elegant forms, have made it an influential inspiration in our own time. "The World of Biedermeier" celebrates the elements of the style in furniture, decorative elements, paintings, crystal, porcelain and fabrics.
