Welcome to my World

In my History of Design II class, we are learning about Art Deco during the 30s and 40s. And when I opened up this month’s Elle Decor, there was an article about Edgar Brandt’s Art Deco metalwork. My mind has been filled with sunbursts, ivory inlays, gold leaf and dynamic shapes for the past few weeks, so I have decided to share.

Here are some oldies but goodies:

If you are intrigued like I am, re-watch The Hunger Games and notice the change of scenery while the train was heading away from District 12.
