In the first part of the eighteenth century Venice witnessed the rise of the Rococo. Furniture evolved parallel with this fashion, acquiring new features and proportions. At the same time, japanned furniture, originating from the interest in the exotic and the orient, within few decades came to enjoy an extraordinary popularity. This essay intends to analyse the evolution of Venetian japanned furniture during the establishment of the Rococo. In doing so, the dissertation will not only focus on the evolution of furniture-design itself, but will set it against its social and cultural context. Indeed, I will also try to explore the relations existing between japanned furniture, the concept of Rococo and the Venetian society.
