Most of us are fascinated by interiors in films and on photographs that shows expensive “classic” European hotels, private apartments and yachts of rich and famous people. All of these rooms indicates a high role in society and the subtle taste. Although not everybody knows that this style, so loved by the Europeans, is called Art Deco.
This style origins in Paris in the first decades of the 20th century. Although the term Art Deco has gained popularity in late 1960s. At the time, this style was seen as elegant, glamorous, functional and modern. Art Deco moved away from the soft pastels and organic forms of Art Nouveau and embraced influences from many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, and Futurism.
This style creates a special mood in any space – the atmosphere of retro, luxury, frivolity, vigor and excitement. It allows to combine things that usually shouldn’t be combined together. The style allows two accents in the same room complementing each other. To create a unique mood of the Art Deco uses use such materials as bronze, leather, rare species of trees, and luxury fabrics. For decorating large canvas paintings, statuettes of precious woods and ivory, pottery, sculptures made of glass and many other things could be used. A very important part of this style are accessories and furniture from Asia. Marble, glass and chrome are also very popular to use when you decorating in this style. Expensive home appliances of course also should be part of such interiors.
True fans of Art Deco don’t use usual furniture and order custom-made solutions. Art Deco is the choice for a mature person that knows his or her place in the society.
