French Restoration Period... or Empire style

I have been calling the style I love Empire, which is the origin of the style that got refined into the French Restoration period in New York, USA. It is much more streamlined and has a definite mix of English and French. I love the simplicity of the lines and the bulkiness of the pieces. It is like the masculine held up by the feminine, much like the human pairing in a marriage.

I am researching and looking for pieces to start my next decorating project, our next house! I would like to develop the plan with some pieces to suggest this style and support it with surrounding modern interior. Depends on the house we pick, that will dictate how I go about achieving my ultimate interiors that lets me live with this style I have loved for years.
