The Hague School Furniture
Next to the Amsterdam School Style, The Netherlands also had the 'The Hague School' as a style during the Art Deco Period. A bit less well-known, but in our view equally, or sometimes even more interesting than the Amsterdam School style furniture.
The Hague School is referring to a group of designer who mostly worked in the area of The Hague and focused on architecture, interior and furniture design. Many people in the 1920s and 1930s found the designs very modern. Functionality is considered more important for the designers of 'The Hague School' rather than the shape. The designs are minimalistic, clean and linear and mainly wood like oak or elm is used.
The most important designers of this movement are Cor Alons, Frits Spanjaar, Cornelis van der Sluys, Hendrik Wouda and Willem Penaat. We feature an amazing early chair by Hendrik Wouda that is a great piece for this style period.
