Since it’s beginnings in 1920s France, Art Deco style has been an enduring and influential style in visual arts and design.
With respect to both architecture and interior design, Art Deco style can be seen across the United States, and the world. You may be familiar with various Art Deco buildings in Miami Beach, Los Angeles, and Manhattan – most notably, the iconic Chrysler Building in New York City.
The aesthetics of Art Deco style make use of bold geometric forms, sunburst patters, rich colors, and lavish ornamentation. During its heyday Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
The Art Deco style once described by art historian, Bevis Hiller as an ‘assertively modern style…that ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear’.
Its clear that this modern-period style has lasting power, and will continue to endure as a classic favorite in terms of fashion, architecture, and of course home décor.
