Art Deco. Thursday , August 23rd , 2018 - 23:54:53 PM
Remember it is only eighty years ago that most homes started to adopt electricity. Before that lamps burned wax or gas.
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.
What makes round coffee tables such a unique buy is because of their round shape. You might not think that this simply design change would be such a big deal, but it is because it so nicely contrasts the traditional rectangular ones. So, if you get one with this circular shape, it would be a great way to set off the look of your space.
