The Great Eastern Home is renowned for housing furniture from all around the world, and has many Art Nouveau collectibles. Art Nouveau furniture pieces display long, sinuous lines that flow and curl in natural ways. This linear style was influenced by the flattened space and flowing lines of Japanese art, which was a popular influence among artists at the time. In Art Nouveau, the lines are often in the form of whiplash curves, long curved lines that extend out, then bend back on themselves. The furniture is created with hardwoods, especially walnut, oak, and exotic hardwoods such as teak. Art Nouveau artists used a unique process of inlay, in which small pieces of different-colored hardwoods and other natural materials are cut out and pieced together to form a flat, ornately decorative surface. Many furniture pieces also incorporate elegantly curved and bent metals. The Art Nouveau collection from The Great Eastern Home includes chairs, consoles, vases, lamps, and more.
