In furniture artist incorporated themes of fountains and sunburst to symbolize the dawning of a new modern age. There were also geometric shapes that were symbolic to technology and machinery. The artists also took their inspiration from ancient cultures such as the civilizations of Central America, Egypt, and Asia. They used luxuriant fabrics and vibrant colors. You saw satiny metal finishes, clamorous mirrors, exotic embellishments such as jewels, and luxuriant leathers. The artists did not used classic materials for their furnishings but instead used materials with glass, inlaid and lacquered wood, stainless steel, and aluminum. They also used daring symmetry and repetition, sweeping curves, the sunburst motif, and chevron patters.
A rich interaction is the byproduct because all materials and people are on equal footing because the space is equal. Unlike a rectangle or square table there is no head or dominate position.
The Art Deco movement began to decline when World War II began because the furniture was considered to extravagant for the economic hardships people were facing. Many of the pieces are now part of art collections.
