Art deco meets mid century :)

Found an amazing sofa set on a local reselling site. had to share it.

one design era met another?
The sculpted and rounded arm rests with a curvy design  are from the very elegant 1920's, 30's and early 40's  Art Deco style/era. And the pencil thin, tapering legs and sleek wood look with removable cushions are a mid century modern influence on the piece. So the set is inspired by design eras spans 1930's to the mid 60's :)

What ever the style, it looks well made.

Could not get any information on the set. However. it does look locally made by a skillful carpenter. Most Indian homes had very retro looking pieces made in the late 60's until the late 80's.They were reproductions of some well known designs and pieces. Most carpenters I speak to, talk about being inspired by film art settings, and film star homes :).

That reminds me, I have a few posts lined up under my Movies, Masti and Magic segment!,  Hoping to post them soon
