Oscar nominations were announced this week, and while we’re thrilled to see Leo get a nod for The Revenant and are pulling for J-Law to win Best Actress, we were also excited to see a nomination in a decidedly less-hyped category: The Danish Girl, up for Best Set Design. This beautiful, groundbreaking love story between artists Lili Elbe and Gerda Wegener is told on a set that’s equally exquisite. The movie begins in 1920s Denmark, where Danish modernism was just beginning to take hold. While we love the simplicity of Scandinavian style, where we really became captivated by the set was when the couple moved to Paris, where the rest of story unfolds in rooms that are so gorgeously gilded and full of stunning Art Nouveau furniture and French antiques that it’s almost enough to distract you from the plot.
While we won’t give too much away about the story line, we couldn’t help but share a few of our favorite stills from the movie, which showcase some of the style we’re talking about…
…like this delicious velvet settee and fringe blanket combo…
…and this work table (OK, we did love some of the Scandinavian stuff!) which would make a to-die-for dining room piece in an industrial space…
…and this gilded wooden bed that is seriously museum-worthy.
While we’d love to get our hands on some of the original pieces shown in the movie, alas, we didn’t have that winning billion dollar Powerball ticket. What we do have, however, is plenty of beautiful antique pieces in our inventory that’ll give you “The Danish Girl” look for far less. Check out our picks (and click images to shop) below!
