The classical period of design pertains to the ancient Greek, Roman and Egyptian styles of design. This was extended to both the arts and architecture as well.
Here we see the influence of that period in the french chateau of designer Juan Pablo Molyneux. His sculpture gallery displays reliefs, casts, a beautiful chandelier (designed by Molyneux himself) and an exquisite plastered ceiling.
