Art Deco Style

For one of the key interior trends for 2019, turn the clock back 100 years! Art Deco was one of the Twentieth Century’s most recognisable periods in terms of style and design. Starting in the 1920s and continuing until the end of the 1940s, Art Deco was a modern and vibrant departure from the heavy Victorian aesthetic.

What is Art Deco?

The Art Deco style is bold and opulent yet elegant and functional. Think geometric forms, polished textures and a monochrome or jewel-toned palette. Imagine the glamorous interiors from The Great Gatsby; luxurious yet clean and contemporary.

Get the Art Deco Look

The Art Deco style is epitomised by clean, structured lines and geometric shapes, whether linear or curved.

No fussy detailing or over-embellishment should be seen! We’ve upholstered our handsome Thomas Chair with teal velvet and added accessories in brass and glass. Decadence runs through Art Deco, so if you buy one piece, we’d recommend a bar trolley or a set of cut-glass tumblers or champagne saucers.

If you want to introduce Art Deco in a small way, how about cladding a chair or footstool with our beautifully designed ’Deco Diamond’ Accent Fabric, available in a range of stylish monochrome shades.
