The History of Decorative Items
Variations of decorative items to embellish the home can be traced back to the cavemen, when cave dwellers painted simple pictures on their walls. Prior to the 18th Century, only the rich and noble could afford to decorate their homes, with hand-made furnishings and ornaments symbolising status and wealth. The Ancient Romans decorated their homes with impressive custom-built furniture to accommodate their needs.
Decorate items only really became popular in the 18th Century early modern period when luxury items were more accessible and affordable for ordinary people. The 19th Century welcomed mass production of items, enabling more people to decorate their home’s interiors. After the war there was a distinct renaissance in interior design, shifting from traditional to modern styles.
