Colors, clean lines and bold prints are very interesting to be mixed. If you are planning to redecorate your entire home or only a room, it is useful to know about the basic concepts of art deco interior design.
Jaylah Rodgers Art Deco, 2018-08-15 19:43:24. 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.

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

It affects people's vision on nature and creates such things like lacquered wood. From this influence, it is growing and the expression of the space of a room becomes more creative.

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.
Felicity Stuart Art Deco, 2018-08-15 13:12:12. A few years ago I worked on my sister's Art Deco apartment in Paris. 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.

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.

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.

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.

Eileen Graves Art Deco, 2018-08-15 09:01:12. No matter what décor style you prefer, table lamps and floor lamp designs abound. Many of the designs are so well done, in fact, that they would complement any environment. Dale Tiffany style lamps, despite being born from that art deco era, continue to add charm to the home or office - and are therefore becoming increasingly popular. They have a tendency to create a focal point that many designs can't do, and remain rare and original in design. Adding a Dale Tiffany style lamp even to a majorly modern home or office creates a unique contrast that many décor designers strive to achieve. This style continues to delight.
