Art Deco took shape as the technology and machine age emerged after WWI. It represented strength, glamour, and hope for a bright future for the world. Likewise we embrace the rapidly changing and ever evolving world we live in, therefore it seems only fitting for this enduring style to take center stage again.
We’ve seen glimpses of the Art Deco trend upon us with the infiltration of black, white, gold and blush into the marketplace. In stepping away from the cold modern interiors of yesterday, we are seeing new shapes, monochromatic color schemes and more details. Patterns are bolder, more geometric and circular, and full of movement with textures becoming more involved and luxurious.
Erte, the iconic graphic designer of the Art Deco era, personified the colors, textures, and patterns best with his 20’s and 30’s fashion illustrations.
Using a monochromatic color scheme and a few choice items such as patterned wallpaper, a great Deco chandelier or a scroll bench at the foot of the bed can bring your space up to trend in an instant. A few great pieces like these are worth the splurge to add to your eclectic room.
Some of the hottest Parisian antique markets have seen an influx of Art Deco furnishings such as these gorgeous chrome chairs we found on our most recent scouting trip. The markets are no bargain but the quality is amazing and you can get one of kind items by famous artists and designers like the lamp featured below in the photos.
After years of Modern and Hollywood Regency being the leading styles in the market, the Art Deco trend is a breath of fresh air. The Jigsaw Designers love mixing styles and textures, so adding key elements of the Deco trend can work perfectly into the aforementioned styles. A Deco rug in a Hollywood Regency room blends perfectly in this beautiful monochromatic bedroom below.
From wall furnishing to furniture there are dozens of ways to capture the Deco trend while it’s hot. Grab some popcorn and rent a roaring 20’s flick and get inspired. Happy decorating!
