Style note — although Edwardian period was short, lasting between 1901 and 1910, it oversaw two major styles — Arts and Crafts and Art Nouveau. Traditionally, most Edwardian items, including furniture and homewares, are elegant both in design and in decoration, well constructed and very functional. Good and tasteful design was much admired during this period.
Facts of Lavish Cool history — tax on tea was so high in the 18th century Britain, that smuggling was a common practice. By 1780 most of the tea consumed was illegally imported.
