Abstract

The Neues Schloss in Pappenheim commissioned by Carl Theodor Pappenheim is probably one of the finest examples of neo-classical interior design in Germany retaining a large amount of original furniture. Through his commissions he did not only build a house and furnish it, but also erected a monument of the history of his family. By comparing parts of the furnishing of the Neues Schloss with contemporary objects which are partly in the house it is evident that the majority of these are influenced by the Empire style. Although this era is known under the name Biedermeier, its source of style and decoration is clearly Empire.
