The Art Deco period of the 1920s swept away the dark sobriety of Victorian living, replacing it with houses that were light, colourful and exciting. Drawing inspiration from ancient Egyptian forms and modern architecture, Art Deco is arguably the most distinctive style of the 20th century and is characterised by streamlined white houses and geometric patterned interiors. The innovative and glamorous designs of the period are still highly sought after by house buyers and homeowners today and this is the perfect book for those who want to learn more about the artistic influences of these years. Using both his own illustrations and colour photographs, Trevor Yorke shows the distinctive features and details of genuine Art Deco homes with chapters on the furnishings and fittings which characterized Art Deco house interiors, including examples of furniture, wallpapers, fabrics, and distinctive details like door handles, hinges and light fittings.
