Handwoven carpet and a chair from the Finnish National Museum's 1930/40s' room.
The Finns clearly have excellent taste.
Something interesting about Finland in this era: it was the one country in the West that was mostly spared the Great Depression, due in large part to its timber exports. After a slump in 1929-'31, the Finnish recovery started as early as 1932 and the economy grew steadily for most of the '30s.

Simplicity never goes out of style, and never comes into fashion.
Art Nouveau did not completely die in Finland as an art movement after 1920s as this photograph taken by Hans Wagner in 1939 shows.
That typewriter stand doesn't look too comfortable!
What a nice series of images. Thank you for posting.
