Mood of Vampires: Gothic interior design (Gothic Furniture)

Gothic is a period of middle age culture of XI-XVI century. This tremendous and magnificent style associated with crusades, obscurantism, witch hunts, pandemic of plague in Europe, the bloody struggle of Catholic and Protestant Churches, the Hundred Years' War (1337-1453), unprecedented construction of unique gothic churches, miniatures of medieval manuscripts, hand-made tapestries, shining stained glass (vitrages), Cologne Cathedral (Germany), Catedral Nueva de Salamanca, Milan Cathedral, Notre Dam de Paris, Kostnice (the Czech Republic)))) ... All basic art principles and art movements of that period in the history of art you can find in the works of Ernst Gombrich. He was a cavaler of the Order of the British Empire, his remarkable History of Art had many editions and translations and has light and elegant language understandable by millions ))
It is generally accepted to differentiate some popular meanings of "gothic" term: Goth is a german tribe, Goth is a barbarian for romans, Gothic is a style of the world history of art, Neo-Gothic is a style originated in England in 40th of the XVIII century, gothic literature. Nowadays, gothic means mostly films and music (gothic rock): Tim Burton'S Gothic Films And Style, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Streetm, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Dracula, Rosemary's Baby, Interview with the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles, Suspiria, The Woman in Black, The Wolfman and etc. Also popular gothic computer games like Gothic, Silent Hill, Disciples, Castlevania, Nosferatu and so on ))
