Why 21st century design lovers will appreciate the Arts & Crafts movement

Not everyone is familiar with the Arts & Crafts genre; many could be forgiven for leaping to ideas of modern day crafting. This historical design movement actually took root during the 19th century. It sought to elevate the production of decorative arts in response to the rise of industrialism, changing the value society placed on how good were manufactured.

The Seven Most Beautiful Antique Fireplaces on Vinterior

Fireplaces have become a celebrated feature in many homes. There is much scope for experimenting with different ways to use – or decorate! – a fireplace. Whilst nothing is better in the throes of winter than curling up in front of a warming fire, they also provide a scope for creativity throughout the rest of the year. Fill the hearth with candles for a contemporary look (or if you’re not too confident at building fires just yet). Alternatively fill them with houseplants or a vase of flowers for something more summery. Some are lucky to already have beautiful antique fireplaces still in place in their homes. Others of us are on a reclamation mission to re-install all those wonderful historical features we ripped out in the 1970s in the name of modernity! Many fire surrounds can be fitted with ease around existing hearths but even a brand new fireplace can be installed if you’re keen to use it as a centrepiece. Enjoy some of the most beautiful antique fire surrounds on Vinterior below and get inspired!
