Interior When by the end of the 19th century the Austro-Hungarian Empire’s economic development and urbanization unfolded, following the British example, the middle class elite’s aspirations rose and it became possible for them to show their modern lifestyles in high quality homes.

The Hungarian and Austrian furniture designers - mostly architects and artists - in conjunction with the secession movements spreading in Europe, created interiors and integrated furniture suites according to the function of a typical living space such as the dining room, the genteel-working room, lobby, etc.

If someone had bought until than only a series of chairs and than purchased separately the table, perhaps even from a different carpenter, from that time on you could buy the entire dining room: furniture, chairs, table, big cupboard for dishes, small cupboard for glasses and porcelain display case in a whole set. The House of Hungarian Art Nouveau, in between other things shows a similar, contemporary dining room.
Interior The House of Hungarian Art Nouveau, in between other things shows a similar, contemporary dining room. This dining room suite, in addition to being uniform and orderly in style, offered a dignified and modern environment for hosts and guests, and met in the same time an other, so-called higher demand.

It worth taking a look at the sky-high wood (world tree) motif on the big cupboard, reaching back to a symbol of Eastern Shaman origin, from the times before the Hungarian conquest, referring to the 5 elements of our physical and spiritual world: the underground, the water, the earth, the sky and the part above the sky, emphasising them even more than in the popular culture.

The House of Hungarian Art Nouveau contains living and working interiors also. One example is the original and listed furniture of the coffee shop and the constantly updated reader’s section presenting contemporary books and professional publications sometimes available only on microfilms in libraries.
