Happy Birthday Germain Boffrand!! French artist, born in 1667, Boffrand was a Rococo (Louis XV) decorator and architect. It is believed he alone solidified and popularized the interior and architectural style “rococo”. He was the son of an architect but first studied sculpture, later opening a practice in architecture and interior design. His own sons collaborated with him, but sadly both died young, before Boffrand. I am including an interior typical of his Rococo syle.
