The Louis XV style evolved from the Regence style but focused more on the movement of freedom in shapes. Wealthy mansions were designed with convenience in mind and were already around during the Regence style, whilst during the Louis XV style private apartments became a lot smaller. Breaking away from the antique or classic styles, this period invented an ornamental repertoire that was completely innovative and original, the Rococo style.
