The 1940s marked a period of transition in interior design: the quarrel between ancient and up to date used to be old-fashioned, the combination of function and art used to be very important, and interior designers were more focused on new creations somewhat than on post-war reconstruction. Following the cubist and art-deco eras, and the modernity of the thirties, the 1940s offered an innovative return to designs influenced by the Neo-classical and the Louis XVI styles – a return to the rustic and to rocaille. The style of this period exhibits the entire contradictions that arise from a society that used to be in a general state of shock, unsure of what the future would hold. Exemplary cabinet making marks the period, featuring famous names like T.H. Robsjorn-Gibbing and George Nelson from the US. In France, Adnet, Arbus, Dominique, Kohlmann, Jallot, and Leleu produced sumptuous ensembles, with beautiful detailing. 1940s Furniture and Interiors features the work of a large number of designers in 300 archival images and latest color photographs. Separate sections on traditionalists and modernists are completed by a section of unique creations. These singular works do not conform to accepted trends or movements: they display the influences of surrealism, futurism, and abstract art, offering an interesting insight into the diverse creations of the decade. 1940s Furniture and Interiors sheds new light on this transitional period in design, as it used to be demonstrated both in Europe and in the US.
