Decadent screen evokes Art Deco glamour


HELENE Guene’s Decoration et Haute Couture would make a lovely addition to anyone’s collection of coffee-table books.

INSPIRATION: Jeanne Lanvin’s carved and gilt wood screen, designed by Armand Albert Rateau, circa 1921

The exquisite pieces housed in Les Arts Decoratifs are any designer’s dream. In particular, the subdued elegance of this carved and gilt lacquered Art Deco screen caught my eye. Designed by Armand Albert Rateau for Jeanne Lanvin’s Paris home, this decadent piece harks back to a bygone era and makes me want to relive the glamour of the roaring 1920s. Get inspired and infuse to your look.
