The Feel of Art Deco

The Art Deco Movement seems to have been a Modern Decorative Reaction to the austere War Years. It was a mixture of Many Styles and Cultures! This showed up in so many areas - and textiles and coverings were no exception!Our friend Charles travels widely and is able to source International Textiles that fit so well into his Art Deco Home. He has beautiful African Designs, Animal skins, Kenti Cloth throws and Rich Turkish Fabrics. Read more about Art Deco Durban and Charle's Art Deco Home here. Its all a lot of fun!
By the way DADS is the catchy acronym for The "Durban Art Deco Society". They are affiliated to ICADS - International Coalition of Art Deco Societies.
