In our modern, light-at-the-touch-of-a-button-world, it is easy to forget that up until the 19th century producing light was an expensive, unwieldy and dirty process. We forget that our grandparents and other predecessors most likely stumbled about in the dark with nothing but a candle and its tiny little flame providing the only source of light for them.
Sasha Anthony Art Deco, 2018-08-23 22:37:19. Traditionally, classy lighting design only came in two variations : uplight and downlight. The theory has essentially stayed the same, as both of these are not harsh on the eyes and create a natural and elegant atmosphere to the room. Upward light design is when the bulb faces upwards, so that the light reflects against the ceiling creating a soft and lush light for the room. Downlight is the opposite, the bulb facing down, so that the delicate light focuses specifically around the table, desk or piece that the lamp has been placed upon. Contemporary designers do the same, by using a variation of materials and unique, beautiful designs. A particularly popular design is the tabletop chandelier, strands of glowing plastic or glass fibers lighting the room naturally and delicately.

Londyn Shepherd Art Deco, 2018-08-04 02:53:08. Originally, it was meant to be used in a set with the parsons table, whose linear look reflects a similar aesthetic in the matching chair. However, in a bit of irony, the simplicity of both has led to them being adapted separately into many styles of furniture and decor. The result? Today, they are rarely seen together. The parsons style is so adaptable that many who own a parsons table or a parsons chair have no idea that companion pieces exist. The parsons chair is virtually always crafted of hardwood, and features a slightly curving, squared backrest and legs. They are usually featured with slipcover upholstery that entirely covers the legs and gives it a solid, monumental appearance. This slipcover is optional or absent on many recent models.

Consider getting a large fancy painted globe for the larger rooms like the living room and fit them with incandescent bulbs to mimic the warm yellow soft light of gas or candlelight. In fact, a custom painted globe was a common gift for the newlyweds at the turn of the century.

It keeps the space uncluttered and organized at the same time. Add some accent tables so you can easily refocus the room to fit your needs at any time.

You can find many of these designs replicated from the original. Even though the prices of the original antique art nouveau lamps are less expensive than the art deco lamps, it still costs a lot around $1875.
Jaylah Rodgers Art Deco, 2018-08-04 02:36:05. If you do find an antique light fixture dated before 1920 there is one very important thing to remember. You cannot use light bulbs that are stronger than 15 watts in it or you could cause a fire. If the light fixture is an antique from 1920s onward then stay safe and only use a 40-watt bulb. Lamps
Eileen Graves Art Deco, 2018-08-04 04:07:06. When a group of leading Parisian artists organized an exposition dedicated to modern industrial and decorative art in 1925, they sparked the birth of a short-lived but highly influential design movement later known as Art Deco. In the 20s and 30s it came to dominate the entire range of decorative arts, in fields as diverse as architecture, industrial design, and, of course, interior design. We can still see Art Deco buildings in many cities and, thanks to a resurgence in the 80s, in hotels and other commercial spaces. To get the complete picture all you have to do today is take a look at any Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers musical film of the 30s and you will be instantly submerged in the total Art Deco experience. I love the futurist faith central to Art Deco, a faith that now seems whimsical and naïve, but that created a thoroughly unique design language that can add a wistful element of nostalgia and playfulness to contemporary interior design.
