Ivory Webb Art Deco, 2018-08-10 21:48:57. 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.

If your house was built in the 1920s to 1940s Art Deco light fixtures might look more suitable and complement the decor of the surroundings.

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.

The living room featured sofas in grey leather with shiny burl wood, the custom cabinetry which hid the TV was done in cream lacquer, the walls were finished in very smooth Venetian plaster in a yellowish palette, and round, heavy mirrors were framed in Zebra and Ebony woods. Window treatments used a simple sheer to cover large windows and the floors were limestone squares. If you're going to do Deco, you need to follow through with at least an entire room, as the style demands continuity in all the elements of the space. The resulting effect transports you to a different and altogether more glamorous high society, where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers danced the night away, drinking champagne without a care in the world.

For example, you can get one that has a very ornamental scrolling metal base finished in a brown patina color supporting a black fossil stone marble top that has an antique feel to it. Or, you can get another that has a very modern appearance made from wood with a cherry finish that has sleek, symmetrical lines. These are not the only style choices that are available either since there are a slew more to pick from as well. Those other choices include ones with a traditional feel, some that have a more contemporary vibe, others that are more on the art deco side and actually look like art work and sculptures that you would see in a museum, and you can even get transitional options that combine one or more styles.

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.

Londyn Shepherd Art Deco, 2018-07-31 21:49:22. 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

Poster art was in its heyday, with some of the finest illustrators capturing the Deco style in advertising for consumer products, the performing arts and sporting events. Ivory, jade and stained glass were common materials for accessories, which were usually tall and thin and graceful, with gentle curves. Patterns on wall coverings often featured foliage, stylized animals and nudes.

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.
