Woman’s BedroomFrom Ensembles mobiliers (1925) via NYPL
Woman’s bedroom from Ensembles mobiliers. Looks straight out of a 1930s movie to me. Picture Garbo or Harlow or Rogers sitting at that dressing table. Also: Check out the polar bear rug. Like I said, animal skins were really popular in the 1920s.

About the Book

Published in conjunction with the Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes — the 1925 Paris exposition considered the blast-off point for Art Deco and later the origin of term — Ensembles mobiliers (translation: Furniture sets) is filled with the very latest, most stylish ideas in contemporary interior design. Here are laid out templates for a style that would take the world by storm, from dining rooms to Hollywood musical sets to public spaces.
