Curtains in the Modernist home


I was delighted to find these images of net curtains in 1930s Modernist homes in Steven Parissien’s book on Interiors. Who would have thought that the uncluttered, fairly stark, Modernist home would have included net curtains. Not only do these homes include net curtains, but they are the only curtains in these interiors. I’m sure the householders would not have described them as net curtains, they are probably muslin or fine cotton, but they perform the same action as net curtains – filtering the sunlight and keeping out the gaze of passers by - and they certainly fit into my definition of net curtains
