What is Art Deco décor?
Art Deco was a design movement that first gained popularity in the 1920s and 30s which epitomised modern, sophisticated elegance over the more traditional, ornate Art Nouveau look of the recent Edwardian and Victorian eras. Common motifs in Art Deco décor are sleek, streamlined shapes, strong lines and geometric patterns, à la Lalique glassware and Clarice Cliff ceramics.
Art Deco décor has remained popular in interior design today as a way to infuse the home with vintage style and a sense of luxury. The visual design of Art Deco is frequently associated with the exuberant rebellion of the Roaring Twenties, the glamour of Great Gatsby-esque parties and the elegance of early Hollywood stars.
How to bring Art Deco décor into the home?
There are lots of ways to bring a little 1920s glamour to the 2020s home and add a few Art Deco touches to your space.
One of the easiest is to add Art Deco prints of works by artists like Erté or Tamara de Lempicka or vintage Vogue covers. For that simple Deco style, choose clean, sleek frames in block colours when hanging your artwork.
Bring in décor items in the elegant, glass styles of the design movement, like our swirling, jewel-toned The Heritage Collection Fragrance Lamps and Reed Diffusers, paired with luxurious scents that will make your home feel like a decadent Deco escape.
You could revive the 20s trend of cocktails by adding a stylish drink cabinet and take inspiration from Deco devotees’ love of sleekly polished and reflective finishes by choosing a statement mirror in a sunburst or geometric shape too. Adding a mirror can also be a quick fix to make a smaller room feel like a larger space. Or for a more eye-catching styling homage add a feature wall of Deco-inspired patterned wallpaper to bring a pop of boldness to the room.
