Pop Goes the Flea Shop!


I recently created a Flea Pop shop! *crowd roars* As I checked out some of the other shop profiles, I saw so many yummy décor items that I decided to create an Art Cart entry inspired by Tamara de Lempicka’s Femme en Vert.

Ms. de Lempicka was a Polish Art Deco painter and the first woman artist to be a glamour star. Her distinctive and bold artistic style was influenced by what Lhote sometimes referred to as soft cubism and by Maurice Denis’ synthetic cubism, epitomized the cool yet sensual side of the Art Deco movement. For her, Picasso (the creator of cubism) embodied the novelty of destruction. She thought that many of the Impressionists drew badly and employed dirty colors. Ms. de Lempicka’s technique would be novel, clean, precise and elegant.

I’ve chosen pieces from various Flea Pop shops that employ the same clean, precise and elegant viewpoints as well as pieces that emulate the Art Deco period.

1. Antique Shoe Form Bookends from Adeeni Home.

2. Brass Hammered Coffee Table from Design Mix Furniture.

3. Metallic Green Vase from Small Fun Things.

4. Light Up Brass Art Deco Ashtray Stand from Soiree in Style.

5. Tufted Black Vinyl Chaise from PopMyVintage.
