Art Deco Style, short for Arts Décoratifs, is characterized by rich colors, bold geometry, and decadent detail work. Having reached the height of its popularity in the 1920s, ’30s, and ’40s, the style still brings in glamour, luxury, and order with symmetrical designs in exuberant shapes.
Whether you incorporate Art Deco from floor to ceiling or add a chair or side table into the mix, the style is sure to elevate your space.
Focus on Streamlined Shapes

Go Wild with Animal Prints

Add Art Deco Accents
