Art Deco Metalwork Inspiration

by Mark LaPalm

Where you draw inspiration from is part of the success of good interior design.  One of the best ways to research styles is through books that cover certain periods or details.  These 2 books are some of my favorites for metalwork!  Art Deco Decorative Ironwork by Henri Clouzot has a wonderful sampling of both furniture and architectural elements specifically from the period.  My other favorite is Wrought Iron in Architecture by Gerald K. Geerlings.  This is invaluable for interior designers since it addresses craftsmanship plus the history by region; Italian, Spanish and French just to name a few.  If you love metalwork and Art Deco, these are not to be missed books.
