Welcome to the brand new Geffrye Makers blog! This is THE place to keep up to date with what’s happening at the museum, get to know more about what volunteers are doing and share your own experiences and interests with the community.
As we will soon be saying goodbye to our period rooms for 2 years, we thought it would be a good idea to make the most of them and share with you some volunteer favourites in our first post.
Margo loves the classic styling of the 1930’s living room: “It’s interesting to see how the furniture in that room hasn’t really “dated” as such and how aspect of 30’s design have carried on through the years and still look fresh and modern”.
Penny, on the other hand, is drawn to the 1990’s loft style apartment: ‘It’s very similar to my own style of living and it’s nice to see I am reflecting a more general trend…or at least I was when I chose the decor in 1994!”
The 1910’s drawing room is a favourite of volunteer Susan: “It’s my favourite room in the museum for all the ideas and aesthetic history imparted by objects, furnishings individually and as a little world of history”.
Do you have a favourite room? Let us know what it is and why you love it by leaving a comment.
All the above photos have been taken by Volunteer Maja Anderson. Have any of your own to share?
