...and we ship worldwide too!
As the new millenium dawns, many people
are beginning to appreciate for the first time the
products of the global design and manufacturing
revolution that occurred in the early decades of the
70 or more years after its heyday, the Art Deco style -
characterised by the use of streamlined shapes,
stylised forms and 'machine age' materials such as
chrome and bakelite - can seem remarkably modern.
This ensures Art Deco items are
ideal for decorating contemporary as well as period
interiors, and explains the rising popularity and
investment value of such pieces.
Until now though, there have been only
limited opportunities for ordinary people with
everyday budgets to obtain good quality, authentic Art Deco pieces from a
reliable, knowledgable source.
That's where we come in!
