Interior Features - Period and Historic Styles


 

Federal Style
artSparx Design archive


With the end of the Revolution and the birth of the new republic, Americans looked to ancient Rome for cultural as well as political inspiration.  At the same time, newly professionalized American architects sought to express the power and influence of their patrons by creating dignified yet democratic homes.  The result of this political and aesthetic cross-pollination was the Federal style, which soon became identified with the hopes, ideals, and character of the young nation.
