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 Did you know? Rather confusingly, English “High Tea” is not a tea party; instead, it refers to an evening meal or dinner, normally eaten between 5 pm and 7 pm.
