I’m reorganizing my boards on Pinterest – mostly the ones with art nouveau style furniture and such. So I have decided to make special board on Gaspar Homar. I recently copied his music stand and art nouveau sofa.

Gaspar Homar was born in Spain in 1870 and died in 1953. 82 years, huh? Not bad at all. I found his biography only in Spanish ( and my Spanish sucks to be honest) but I managed to find out that not only he was a fantastic cabinetmaker but he also was into mosaics and house decoration, lighting etc.

Here is on of such houses, all the furniture is now in the museum in Catalonia:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And here is the furniture itself (chandelier is also his work, fantastic):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The sofa is pretty close to what I made. Look at those finials on the cabinets, pretty cool! You can find similar ones on the sketch below, that’s the sofa I made, but I decided against the lamp and finials, too extravagant to me.

 

 

 

 

Another house, not his design, but you can see his mosaics here:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And finally his most famous piece (IMO):

 

 

40 types of wood were used here. Fabulous!
