rococo[rukO´kO, rO–] Pronunciation Key, style in architecture, especially in interiors and the decorative arts, which originated in France and was widely used in Europe in the 18th cent.
The term may be derived from the French words rocaille and coquille (rock and shell), natural forms prominent in the Italian baroque decorations of interiors and gardens.
During the 1660s and 1670s, the rococo competed with a more severely classical form of architecture, which triumphed with the accession of Louis XVI.
