Biedermeier

A period between 1815 and 1848 when the arts in central Europe changed to reflect wealthy non-aristocrats’ sensibilities. Initially, designs went from rococo to clean lines. I’ve always thought of this word as being composed of bieder and Meyer, the last name used as a metaphor for the common man.
