“The bold and sweeping statements of geometry, symmetry, and metallics bring visions of Great Gatsby-esque design to mind, with a sleek and shiny patina providing the most sumptuous of excess. And today’s take on updated art deco style is decidedly playful and modern for a standout look”, Décor Aid.
The materials used in art déco interior design are quite different from the rest of the other aestehtics. They are normally reflective and sleek, providing glamour everyday. Plenty of mettalics, brass, finishes that can go from silver to gold and chrome. “They lend any room an elegant and luxurious feel, and they can be used everywhere. Imagine a modern art deco living room with a glass topped gold coffee table, chrome lamps, and a bold geometric patterned rug in black, gold, and white. Glass is also a frequently used material in art deco design; whether that’s through mirrors, glass-topped tables, sculptural elements or an art deco vase or lamp, as glass adds to the elegant feel of an art deco room (…) Deluxe materials like marble are also prevalent in rooms of this style; don’t forget, this era was all about lofty extravagance and materials used in your room design were a perfect way to display prestige.”
A bold color palette is one of the main features of art déco style: white, black, silver, purple and gold color themes are usually the chosen ones. Deep jewel tones are also rich and ideal for soft furnishing or lighting, in contrast with black and white walls, for example.
ART DÉCO SHAPES AND DETAILS:
In art déco interior design style, natural and geometric themes are heavily present. Leaves, branches, feathers along stylized animal elements are some of the most common design accessories we can expect og a modern art déco room. “Geometry is also abundant in art deco design, 1920 saw increased production and geometric shapes represented the changing times. Geometric shapes, trapezoids, chevrons and zig-zags should fill your room; popping up obviously and discreetly throughout your design. Sunbursts are an elegant and bold addition to an art deco room and you’ll see plenty of jagged and pointed edges – art deco fan-shaped mirrors are a perfect example of this and the symmetry they provide is clear.”
FURNISHING AND LIGHTING:
“As with everything in art deco interior design, 1920’s furniture was fiercely unique. Pieces were on a large scale, so don’t be surprised to see imposing side boards in ebony and pieces which really take up floor space.”
