decorative arts - unique and functional

Saturday, 25 April 2015

Collecting art is nice but imagine you can "use" your dearly beloved piece of art in modern life? Have a look at these kind of towel holders and visualise such a beautiful decorative art work as an eyecatcher in bathroom. Artfour has assembled some interesting pieces for a new look.

decorative arts - unique and functional

Decorative arts is traditionally a term for the design and manufacture of functional objects. The decorative art is often categorized in opposition to the fine arts (painting, drawing, photography, etc.) which have no function than to be seen. Therefore a lower status was given to the works of decorative art in the past and finally in 1911 an act extended the definition of an "artistic work" to include works of "artistic craftsmenship". From that time decorative art could be classified as works of art and artfour is offering some extraordinary unique ideas.
