As the late 20th-century fascination with rounded shapes, organic influences and plastics fades, interior designers are increasingly drawn to dark colours, polished woods, velvets, furs, leather, dark metals and brick - materials with a nostalgic quality that were used liberally in centuries gone by. Efforts to shape a more authentic, less austere present by creating an idealized version of the past have begun to appear in commercial and residential design domestically and abroad. Dark Nostalgia presents 25 projects that exemplify the smooth incorporation of evocative historic details into current interiors. They all demonstrate the many successful ways this trend towards a dark nostalgia has been incorporated into recent designs.
