4th Nov 2012 – A bygone era

Remember the Great Gatsby – a bygone era of decadence, glamour and innovation; the art deco era.  Today, there is a market for things vintage or ‘retro’.   People will pay £100s for vintage clothes and antique items.

Modern companies know the appeal of that bygone era too.  Reproduction art deco furniture and furnishings.  Even gift cards, stationary paper, journals and calendars have all been given the art deco make-over.

In the rental apartment that I am living in, the light furnishings are of that bygone era – repro I strongly suspect.  These half-lights become full lights when placed against the reflecting mirror.
