What is Art Deco Furniture?
The term “Art Deco” is short for Arts Décoratifs and is derived from a 1925 Paris exhibition that showcased this new style to the world. Art deco furniture is characterized by symmetrical, clean, rectilinear lines. It combines traditional craftsmanship with modern machinery and materials. Its beauty lies in the use of rich, exotic materials and opulent designs. This luxurious style of furniture was specifically designed for wealthy manufacturers who wanted their own distinctive line.
3 Art Deco Design Tips
- Choose bold geometric patterns and colours: The art deco style is characterized by bold colours and patterns. While for some this translates to bold wall colours or geometric-patterned wall paper, for others it could mean furniture of unique shapes. If you are not quite ready to commit to any of these, opt for a patterned rug or large piece of art work for a focal wall. Black and green are dominant colours.
- Choose different materials: Non-traditional furniture materials such as metals, stainless steel, ebony, chrome, plastic and marble take centre stage in art deco interiors. Leather and lacquer are also a key component of art deco furniture. Try metallic finishes with ornate detailing and clean lines.
- Pay attention to lighting: The art deco style includes glamorous lighting that some may argue borders on “loud”, but has a certain air of elegance. Lots of natural light adds to the beauty of the clean lines and geometric shapes of art deco furniture and accessories.
