Checking Out Some Ancient Decor — St. Louis Art Museum

This weekend I had the opportunity to go to the Saint Louis Art Museum. There I checked out the Decorative Arts and Textile exhibit.

I’ve been to a few museums but have never seen a Decorative Arts exhibit. I thought that it was just perfect. So many beautiful pieces that ranged from 1990s all the way to the 1700s. Its crazy how ‘history repeats it self’. Much like fashion, a lot of the same decorative designs are now back in style.

I’ve taken the time to post some of the pieces I loved from the exhibit! Hope you enjoy such great historic pieces as much as I did.
