One of the prime advanced world culture has created the first complete design style. Also, the Egyptian style is the source of almost all the others European styles.
The house interior is rich and colorful. Luxury columns prop up the ceiling. Artistic images highly stylized despite the sacred attitude to them.
The walls are faced in neutral colors – light yellow, warm shades, beige. The walls of the palace halls were covered with paintings, patterned reliefs, and glazed tiles. Moreover, the ceilings were adorned with scenic images. Sometimes this technique was applied to the floors too. In addition to the images of daily life, there were floral motifs – lotus, papyrus, palm trees, vines, branches of fruit trees, as well as images of birds, fish and animals.
Rounded corners, arches, niches are the Egyptian style too. Reed mat on the floor, cat figurine, the Nefertiti bust, quiet and strict geometric symmetry created graceful unforgettable mood and atmosphere.
Besides, geometrically strict lines were dominated in the furniture. However, soft and smooth lines were used in the corners. Egyptians paid a lot of attention to the functional side of the furniture; usually it matches the proportions of the human body. The backrests and armrests were often covered with carving. The chair and table legs were usually ended with the shape of the paws or hooves, as well as duck heads.
Different types of wood were used during furniture decoration. Inlay and mosaic have become widely spread. Colored enamel, ivory and metal plates, pearl, gilding were another essential materials.
The palaces and rich houses were furnished with the tables, chairs, sofas, and stools. There are lots of high beds and stretchers with the canopies. The houses contained a large number of boxes and caskets for the valuables, jewelry, and fabrics. Also, the furniture decoration and forms varied.
Moreover, much attention was paid to the ornaments. Themes were images of animals, as well as plant geometric motifs.
Textiles expressed in monochromatic light colors (preferably white or cream), and strict geometric patterns (stripes, zigzags across the surface). The secret of the style – decoration in the form of a sphinx head, scarab beetle, a hawk with outstretched wings.
The large lamps, papyrus stems, and reeds in the high ceramic vases played an extremely high role in the Egyptian style.
