Arts & Crafts is one of my favorite styles.
Art Deco is another of my favorites, and to tell the truth, if I could have an Arts & Crafts style house, would I fill it with Arts & Crafts, or Art Deco, or both? On the other hand, would I have the nerve to keep it other than Arts & Crafts?
At the moment, I am buying, as needed, replacement furniture that is 1930's style. It seems to be something that the furniture stores are willing to stock. There are also Arts & Crafts furniture, which I love, and this delights me to no end. Must buy as much as possible before the furniture stores change their minds, and start stocking "modern" styles, with I loathe most of the time.
Our brand-new 1930's style overstuffed chair. Beautiful!
Next, I would LOVE to get rid of the awful blue carpet (it is wearing like iron--placed there in 1999, still looks like new), and replace our flooring with probably wood floors, if not, tile with a large Persian rug.
Of course it has come down to the new chair is really for the cats. How could I possibly think it would be for us or our guests?

1920ish Buffet/Sideboard Spanish Revival period of California. Two pieces are replaced, and cleanup needs to be done on the legs and bracing, yet. This is a huge improvement from when we first got it, however. I use lemon oil only to clean the wood. It is made of mahogany.
