Edwardian Period (1900 - 1910)
The Edwardian era saw the beginning of a new century with a new king and a new style of interior design.The heavy, dark, cluttered look of the Victorian era was gone, and in its place, something much lighter and more cheerful.
Some of the most famous designer for this era include:
Thomas Sheraton -furniture
Louis Comfort Tiffany- lighting
This early20thcentury style had an eclectic feel to it, and drew from elements of Georgian, Medieval and Tudor style. Light, airy, and simplicity of detail were key principles of this era.
Bamboo and wicker was the material of preference in Edwardian times. This added to the already delicate and breezy nature of the style. Other furniture was reproductions, drawing influence from baroque, rococo and empire style. The wing chair is a classic shape, and upholsteryfavouredchintz and damask in palecolours.
Shifting away from the darkness of the Victorian interior,colourswere fresh and light, with an informal feel. Patterns were feminine, with flowers and floral designs being highlyfavoured.Colourswere predominantly pastels: blue, lilacs, greens, yellows and grays. The floral theme was complemented by the liberal use of fresh flower arrangements. Living rooms often took darkercolourssuch as dark green for fabrics, complemented with cream walls.
