It all began with baroque, where gold adorned frames, handles, and every small object you could lay eye upon. Then came Art Deco, where gold took simpler, more graphic lines. Gold is known for bringing warmth to an interior, once synonymous of ostentation, it has now become the perfect touch to modernize an interior. From graphic to organic, from figurative to abstract, gold has many faces.
