An authentic Art Deco house in Hauts de France
In the heyday, from 1890 to the declaration of war in 1914, French industrialists built more sophisticated and original houses than the very classic mansions. Their architects drew on Art Nouveau as their sources of inspiration, made of curves and arabesques. In England, it was the Arts & Crafts movement that first carried this development.
The arrival of concrete, a modern material of the moment, associated with a desire to revive the art of cabinetmaking, pottery and enamelling, allowed creators to give free rein to their imaginations. The Universal Exhibition of 1900 offered representatives of the Art Nouveau style an extraordinary showcase. Art Nouveau developed simultaneously with the industrial revolution and took advantage of technical progress. He therefore uses stone, glass and metal. Then emerge architectural masterpieces like the Eiffel Tower. Later, the Art Deco period came to purify the lines in a more geometric way.
One can imagine that our property for sale, built in 1911, was influenced by a stay in Paris by its builder, a prosperous industrial supplier of the greatest architects of the time. Indeed, many Parisian mansions have preserved the materials made in Saint Sanson pottery.
