How Victorian Design is Standing the Test of Time
There can be no mistaking the grandeur of the Victorian era and the global sway on architecture, fashion and interior design this quintessentially British export continues to exert today. If you’re balking at the idea of modern Victorian fashion, look no further than ruffled, high-collared blouses and the return of the ornate sleeve. In stark contrast to the cramped but beautiful Victorian style of a bygone era, the minimalism of the Nordic countries and many modern interiors seems to have lived past its peak in the popularity stakes. There is a return, domestically and elsewhere, to a modern take on Victorian opulence. The style is distinctly reminiscent of the grand reign of Queen Victoria and the period between 1837 and 1901, which is when this design influence had its origins.
