Streamlined Shapes

The Duchess of Hamilton

Streamline Moderne is a development of the Art Deco style, an industrialised version with the ornamentation stripped away to produce an aerodynamic, sleek look. The wonderfully elegant Duchess of Hamilton locomotive in the National Railway Museum is a perfect example of the style.

When it comes to a modern take on streamline for the home, look for the same aerodynamic, sleek designs that define the look, the large floor standing lamp below is a good example.
