Art Deco Interior Style
Moulded Elegance Of Shapes, Subtle And Sleek
Art Deco is a decorative style emerging in the 1930's from French origins and inspired by a Neo Classical influence. Art Deco furniture features simple streamlined forms, sleek lines, geometric shapes and arcs. Widely considered to be an eclectic form of elegant and stylish modernism, Art Deco Decor was largely influenced by a variety of sources; many of them the so- called primitive arts, as well as gathering inspiration streamline technology or from the machine age.
The skill of this era's craftsmen is evident in the way that they meld elements together using subtle, sleek lines. The Art Deco furniture shapes have a moulded elegance, sometimes with motifs added as finishing features. For Timeless Interiors this entails the joining of individual and distinctive shapes together, still allowing each element to stands alone, but compliment the other.
The Art Deco Home
The Art Deco home frequently uses:
- Walls; large rounded shaped walls. Quite often the end of walls and structures will be reeded and grooved in appearance to soften the look, while maintaining a strong, heavy, structural appearance.
- Tiles on floors; are often layered to give a rounded effect and appearance and to accentuate the shape of the walls. Frequently, curved internal walls are added for continuity of feel.
- Light fittings; rounded and distinctive, are a very important feature in an Art Deco/Neo Classical home.
- Elements; The extensive use of marble stone, chrome and black colour are generally requirements in a Deco home.
Art Deco furniture design is modernism in its earliest form.
