Historical Society looks at turn-of-the-century home decor

Historical Society talk on decor

On February 5, 2013, Kiki Jordan will give a talk entitled, "A Look Back at St. Louis: Life, Architecture and Interiors 1885-1910." With the emergence of the industrial revolution, St. Louis becomes a viable city in the late 1800s.

Not only are new industrial technologies used, but many companies emerge, giving vitality to the city and housing market. New inventions and the development of interiors change dramatically, forging a new viewpoint on the style of the day as well as the comforts of home.

Jordan is adjunct professor of interior design at St. Louis Community College--Meramec. 7 pm at U. City public library. Open to the public.
