Anyone with an eye for trends or with an affinity for what’s new knows that it is no longer a mortal sin to add decoration to the interior. Until a couple of years ago, it was just not the done thing to break the clean minimalism with fantasy motifs. Nowadays, decorating a minimalist-looking table with a vibrant ceramic or a colourful textile seems to be a sign of excellent taste. Birds with elegant wings, flowers in full bloom, insects which seem to have escaped a fairytale, dripping icicles, Greek Goddesses, baroque curls and elegant curves are invading the design world. Forms with Fantasy
investigates and interprets this rampant trend for the first time. Over 100 designers illustrate how minimalism is becoming increasingly decorated, how they experiment with lace and cut-out techniques and how old styles can be brought up to date again and again.
