Kailyn Velez. Art Deco. August 23rd , 2018.
Art Deco was, above all, modern with a capital M. The geometric shapes, sharp angles, stepped patterns and sweeping curves were meant to capture the rapid advances in industry and technology that characterized the early 20th Century. This is why some of the most iconic examples of Art Deco style are the hi-tech symbols of the time: skyscrapers, ocean liners, radios and even phonographs. It's why the favored materials were aluminum, glass and stainless steel. Even the wood was shiny, either lacquered or inlaid. The floors were shiny as well, marble or tile, often with checkerboard patterns. Rugs featured geometric patterns, while Zebra skin and shagreen (snake skin) covered decorative surfaces. Mirrors were usually round and plentiful. Sunburst and chevron motifs could be seen on everything from furniture to woman's shoes to radiator grilles on cars. Paradoxically, while Art Deco was the epitome of Modernism, influences included patterns and symbols from Aztec Mexico, Egypt and Africa.
With inexpensive price tags, you may have the wrong impression that these products are of low quality, but they are not. With ceramic, it turns out that the manufacturers are using one of the easiest materials to work on. They can be molded and mass produced in great number. However, it does not mean that all ceramic lighting are cheap. There are those which have very complicated artworks which are crafted by using hands. These are the more expensive products but it can be very worth as you will see yourself possessing a very unique treasure. You cannot find another one under the sun that look just the same as yours.
Next, art deco interior design developed with the influence of many other cultures. Not only in one country but also brought many effects from other country with its own characteristic. The result is more materials involved in this art and give you many options if you want to redecorate interior design living room.
