A-Gent of Style was thrilled and honoured to be approached in August by Abigail Fielding-Smith at the Financial Times to help with the research of a new article on Art Deco (oh the power of social media and word of mouth!). Some of you might recall the first article A-Gent of Style co-researched a few months ago for the Financial Times on Art Deco and Paris named Read Between the LinesThis time, the feature concentrated on Art Deco and Egyptomania. Whilst A-Gent is no expert or specialist about Art Deco – just a humble and passionate aficionado – he was delighted to work on another Art Deco project and to delve with great alacrity into the singular aspect that is Egyptology – of which he knew little – one of the many influences of the prominent decorative and visual style of the 1920s and 1930s. It was also a great pleasure to see inspirational designers (Shahbaz Afridi, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, David Collins Studio, Lisa Fine, Tessa Kennedy, Lulu Lyttle of Soane Britain, Guy Oliver), some of whom A-Gent of Style has the privilege to call friends, being featured or quoted.

Below are the scans of the article which came out now three weeks ago in the House & Home section of the FT (A-Gent of Style was in Tangier at the time and had to wait to return to London to be able to see the print version). You can click on each image to enlarge it.

A big thank you to Abigail Fielding-Smith and the Financial Times for their trust and support.
