art-deco

BRIEF

Art Deco is an iconic early twentieth century interior design style of French origin which pervaded most of the decorative arts of the 1910s to the 1930s.

 

FEATURES

Key Art Deco indicators are stylised sunburst and graduated step motifs; a fascination with African, Russian and, most importantly, Egyptian cultures; and exotic materials such as macassar ebony and zebrano woods, lapis lazuli and jade stone and shagreen. The style was heavily inspired by the Industrial Revolution so metal was also incorporated into furniture design. Forms were curved or angular and the most recognisable colour palette was black, white and gold.
