5 Art Nouveau Furniture Pieces for your home
Art Nouveau is an artistic movement employed in design, architecture and visual arts, which emerged in the first part of the 20th century, and still leaves an important imprint on interior design today. The Art Nouveau style reveals itself as a combination of artistic decorative baroque details with organic touches, feminine curves, and elongated leaf-inspired aesthetics. The Jnane Tamsna loves to incorporate in within Moroccan inspired spaces, L’Hotel Grand Amour owns some unique vintage pieces: Art Nouveau can boost any contemporary design into an even sophisticated one.
Moroccan Hammered Vase in GoldEl Fenn From £120
This round gold vase is a shining example of Moroccan craftsmanship. The copper-plated metal is hand-hammered once the vase has been shaped, by local artisans. And their attention to detail shows in the delicately flared rim and expertly executed shape. This piece comes in two sizes – medium or large. And both are a bright idea. Medium’s great for smaller bunches of flowers, or as a standalone decorative piece. While the larger size is perfect for bigger blooms.
