Art Deco Decadence

I am currently working on a fabulous Art Deco gentleman’s wardrobe, which is purely coincidental given The Great Gatsby mania that is about to strike.  Personally I can’t wait!!

This particular piece has wonderful shelving with little compartment tags attached to each one, such as a shelf for shirts and one for hats.  On the inside of the door below the mirror is a special tray for brushes.  It’s the detail that gives it the edge.

It’s very exciting to see it transform from a rather drab wooden box to something rather special.  I have chosen masculine paint colours in deep burgundy and grey/greens.  Looking forward to posting the final result.

I have also managed to pick up a suit stand, not Art Deco unfortunately, but I thought it would make the perfect accompaniment for the wardrobe.

I wonder if Jay Gatsby had something similar….
