Art Deco. Tuesday , August 21st , 2018 - 11:48:36 AM
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.
On the other hand, investing in the round glass design fits the more traditional room style. It can lighten the heaviness of the room and add subtle elegance that draws guest and feels comfortable. Upon entering the room nothing is more fitting than the console table. It can be adored as a centerpiece that draws in the guest and invites them to enter your sanctuary where the glass coffee tables continue that flow.
There are also more fabrics and softer materials like sharkskin, zebra patterns, or soft elegant silks affect people's vision in the art. So, it is possible if you want to get a situation of warm pacific waters, savannahs of Africa or the beauty of Chinese and Japanese. With a little imagination and creativity combining those materials, you are able to apply art deco as well as possible.
