Art Deco style has had a major resurgence almost 100 years after it first came on the scene, as the design world embraces this sleek, graphic and geometric style thanks to the immanent debut of Baz Luhrmann's Gatsby movie.
We are seeing touches of deco in fashion, hints of it in typography and pinches of it in interiors, and I [Amanda] couldn't be happier. Deco is one of my favourite styles and having so much reference to it around at the moment is making me smile.
Perhaps you love the style too and want to know ways in which you can combine it with contemporary interior design. Well, we have selected a few examples of spaces we feel combine the then and the now very well.
Art Deco style is moody and glamourous. It took its inspiration from the machines of the day; ocean liners, trains, aeroplanes, cars and their chrome finishes, speedy lines and geometric forms. It was a time of opulence and being showy with mirror and velvet and yet could be quite pared back and minimal too. It is a style that evokes emotion and creates amazing spaces to envelope yourself in!
