Fine Art Inspired by Natural Forms
Handcrafted in quarter sawn white oak favorited in the Arts & Crafts movement and complemented in Art Nouveau fabric accents.
Art Nouveau is a style of decorative art, architecture, and design prominent in western Europe and the US from about 1890 until World War I and is characterized by intricate linear designs and flowing curves based on natural forms. A reaction to the academic art of the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. In furniture and architecture, designers tried to harmonize with the natural environment.
