What is Art Deco?
Think bold, strong colours and delineated geometric shapes.
Art Deco is decorative and architectural arts style prevalent from the 1920s and 1930s in a time when people were coming out of World War One. People were thinking about their future and had the money to spend. This Art Deco movement captivated people as it grew out of a desire to be rid of the past and embrace the future.
Art Deco represents lavish and luxurious style. Designer lamps, crystal, marble and expensive furniture are all effective statement pieces for this current trend. To date, Art Deco remains a firm favourite for a classic, contemporary design.
French Furniture Fittings feature many Art Deco handles, knobs and pulls – so you can make all those little changes and create such a big difference to your home.
How to Bring Art Deco Into Your Home Interior
Combining Art Deco with Classic Elements
Using a luxurious Art Deco style harmoniously combined with a combination of other elegant, timeless and gorgeous interiors, such as modern and classic can have a remarkable effect on an interior. By carefully combining different elements from multiple styles you can have an eclectic Art Deco interior that’s bound to wow guests.
The Art Deco Colour Palette
Delicate and noble shades such as grey, beige and brown are classic palette choices for an Art Deco style. Bright elements and embellishments are typical of this design, but not always necessary to complete the look. Due to the abundance of textures, Art Deco does not always require additional features. However, a common detailing element for Art Deco is Gold because of its rich and elegant features.
Luxurious Gold Detailing
