The Art Deco period of the 1920s and 1930s swept away the sobriety of the Victorian and Edwardian eras, bringing in homes that were bright, 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 home-owners 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 drawings and colour photographs, Trevor Yorke illustrates the distinctive features and details of genuine Art Deco homes, with chapters on the furnishings and fittings characteristic of Art Deco house interiors, including examples of furniture, wallpapers, fabrics, and details like door handles, hinges and light fittings.
