Introducing Art Deco into your Interior
The Art Deco movement emerged in France after World War I, it was a move away from the hardship endured during this time and was known as the roaring 1920’s; a time of glamour, jazz, frivolities, fashion and luxury.
Art Deco saw a huge shift towards modernisation; the Paris Exhibition of 1925, showcasing fashion, taste and luxury signalled the beginning of this. The Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes was an exhibit dedicated to modern, decorative arts; the term Art Deco was coined in the 1960’s when reminiscing on this exhibition.
Art Deco spanned across the elements of design, from photography to architecture, transport to furniture and product designs. An eclectic style, it embodied the Flapper style, it was modern and luxurious and the craftsmanship and materials used were exemplary. Art Deco replaced the curved flowing lines of the Art Nouveau movement; furniture became machine-made and angular, with bold geometric patterns prominent.
