The reemergence of Art Nouveau designs recalls an earlier era filled with the wonders of nature. Extravagant organic forms are in the spotlight, set against a backdrop of deep, jeweled hues. Lavish, stylized recreations of flora and fauna center at the heart of every design, weaving a rich tapestry that ties in to the nature and opulence trends currently hip in home fashions.
