"Italian Rococo design refers to interior decoration in Italy during the Rococo period, which went from the early 18th century to around the 1760s. As in the Baroque style, furniture for the wealthy was usually gilded with silver, gold or bronze. Middle-class families and Lombard workshops left furniture unpainted, and was often made with fruitwoods or walnut.
