Favourite Thing on a Friday - Art Deco Design

With the current love affair for all things vintage, the glamour of the 1940s and 50s is having somewhat of a revival. However, for me, you can't beat the the stylish elegance of the 1920s & 30s.  Yes, without a doubt definitely my Favourite Thing on a Friday is Art Deco Design.

Originally known as Moderne style, art deco influenced everything from fashion, interior design and of course architecture. One of my favourite architects from the period has to be Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Living in pretty Market Harborugh (UK) I am lucky enough to be only about 30 minutes away from one of his most famous projects 78 Derngate, which he re-modelled in his iconic Modernist style in 1917. It is a great place to visit if you ever get a chance - and they even have a lovely tea-room too.

ITV3 are currently re-running The House of Elliott, which I am watching most days, so I totally have the 1930s on the brain at the moment!  So with thoughts of all things Art Deco take a look at these beautiful items I have found on Folksy:


 









 

These items are definitely on my wish-list for Xmas - hope you are taking note Mr A?
