This classic work reproduces duotone plates from original volumes first published in 1926 to illustrate the rooms furnished for the 1925 Paris Exposition des Arts D, coratifs which launched the Art Deco movement. The rooms display a treasure trove of original features, including carpets, lighting, wall hangings and classic quality furniture of the period.
Among the interiors illustrated are grand reception rooms, bedrooms and boudoirs, artists studios, dining rooms, hallways and a kitchen. Alastair Duncan's scholarly introduction and the detailed documentary captions, which identify the designers, architects and decorators, provide a unique insight into the decorative style of this important period. The book is an essential acquisition for all modern designers, decorators, home furnishers and collectors.
