Woman In Gold

Woman in Gold

I just watched Woman In Gold, and loved it (recommend! recommend! recommend!).  It stars Helen Mirren as an Austrian woman who sues the Austrian government for return of a Klimt painting, stolen by the Nazis.  

The flashbacks scenes are stocked with gorgeous things, filling out the world of a family that would actually be commissioning Klimts.  So stunning!

Two sets caught my eye.  First there was this elegant rope banister/railing/whatever-you-call-it-when-it-is-rope with lion head hardware. Why don't we see this style more?  I guess it is hard to clean, and could turn nautical very quickly.


Then there is this amazing office!
