Having first appeared in Paris in the 1910s, the Art Deco design movement flourished across the United States and Europe in the 1920s to early 1930s. Since then the Art Deco movement has continued to inspire home interiors for nearly a century.

Well known for several distinctive characteristics that set it apart as a highly influential and recognizable art and design movement, Art Deco design represented a break from the ornate and elaborate styles of the past. 

Strong geometric shapes that create a sense of dynamism and modernity and symmetry providing balance and harmony are key elements in Art Deco design. Additionally, the movement embraced the concept of streamlining, which emphasised sleek, aerodynamic forms that suggested speed and progress. 

Art Deco is celebrated for its boldness, innovation, and timeless appeal, making it one of the most enduring and influential design movements of the 20th century. Despite its origins nearly a century ago, Art Deco continues to exert a profound influence on contemporary design trends. Its enduring appeal lies in its ability to seamlessly blend the past with the present, offering a timeless aesthetic that transcends fleeting fashions. 

Art Deco-inspired furnishings and decor elements infuse spaces with an air of sophistication and glamour, adding a touch of vintage allure to modern interiors. There are numerous ways to incorporate this timeless style into modern-day interiors. Start by introducing geometric patterns, mirrored surfaces, and metallic accents to evoke the spirit of the Jazz Age. Experiment with bold colours such as emerald green, sapphire blue, and rich burgundy to infuse rooms with drama and vibrancy. 

Invest in statement pieces of furniture with sleek lines and luxurious finishes, embodying the Art Deco aesthetic. Incorporate decorative elements such as sculptural lighting fixtures, lacquered surfaces, and graphic artwork to create a sense of visual interest and depth. Don't shy away from mixing Art Deco-inspired pieces with contemporary furnishings to achieve a harmonious balance of old and new.
