Antique Bauhaus furniture and decor are the primitive seeds of modern design. Bauhaus style help define the modern design doctrine that functionality and craftsmanship reign supreme over ornamentation.
Founded in 1919 at Staatliches Bauhaus in Wiemar Germany, the Bauhaus style gained influence in Germany first, transforming German modernism, before spreading to the rest of Europe. At the heart of the aesthetic, and styles like American Craftsman, lay the belief that mass-manufacturing creates soulless art. In the vein of the movement itself, the intricate simplicity of an authentic piece of Bauhaus decor oozes with creativity and personality.
