Adam Style

Taking inspiration from Roman art, Adam Style challenged the somewhat rigid pragmatism of the Georgian and neo-Palladian design. Where Georgian design was angular, even stolid, Adam style was graceful and curvilinear. Under Robert Adam¡¯s influence, oval shapes began to appear everywhere, from drawer pulls to entire oval rooms. Adam was eclectic in his influences, taking decorative elements from Byzantine, Italian Baroque, and Etruscan tradition.
