Eltham Palace Modernist Interiors (1937)
1930s Art Deco decadence epitomized itself at Eltham Palace, an often undervalued London tourist attraction. Built by the wealthy Courtauld family next to the remains of the original Eltham Palace, childhood home of Henry VIII, it’s the finest examples of Art Deco architecture in England. It has been referred to as a “masterpiece of modern design.”
Swedish designer, Rolf Engströmer, was contracted by Stephen and Virgina Courtauld to construct the modernist/art-deco interior that still exist within Eltham to this day.
