ABOUT Art Nouveau lighting

Hugely popular in the UK today, Art Nouveau lighting came into fashion at the end of Queen Victoria’s reign and disappeared in the 1920s for the more favoured Art Deco style lighting. Its revival in the sixties has seen demand soar, and Art Nouveau lighting remains very popular today. The most famous designer associated with Art Nouveau lighting was Scotland’s most celebrated designer of the 20th Century, Charles Rennie Mackinstosh. Inspired by nature, Art Nouveau lighting often depicted long hair, female curves, flowers, and plants in it’s intricate designs. Glass shades were often adorned with etchings of anything from feathers to wings, and muted colours typically used to complement the natural theme.
