In the 1890’s a new fashion emerged in the form of Art Nouveau. This was epitomised by free flowing forms and swirls with broad leaves and petals and lashing curves. This new style was not as constrained as the traditional Victorian period and veered away from realism and regularity. The designs were often asymmetrical and more organic. Charles Rennie Mackintosh interpreted Art Nouveau in a slightly different way with sparser lines and more emphasis on the vertical. Although quite radical at the time his designs are now classics and we have often been influenced by this style while designing our windows.
