Why We Still Love Art Deco

Ben Fordham

At the dawn of the 20th century, amidst the rapid technological advancements and cultural shifts, the Art Deco movement emerged as a beacon of progress and elegance. Originating in France before World War I, Art Deco became a symbol of the modern age, reflecting the excitement of the times with its innovative designs and luxurious materials. Art Deco was more than just an aesthetic; it was a celebration of modern life, combining the decorative arts with industrial design and becoming synonymous with sophistication, glamour, and exuberance.

This style quickly spread across the globe, influencing architecture, fashion, and even transportation design. From the skyscrapers of New York City, such as the iconic Chrysler Building, to the sleek passenger liners like the SS Normandie, Art Deco left an indelible mark on the visual landscape of the era. Its influence was pervasive, touching everything from cinema to jewelry, and it played a pivotal role in shaping the modern perception of style and elegance. The movement was characterized by its use of geometric shapes, symmetrical patterns, and a bold palette that included metallic and vibrant colors, encapsulating the dynamism and optimism of the early 20th century.

In the vibrant era of the roaring twenties, a groundbreaking design movement known as Art Deco took the world by storm. Renowned for its bold geometric patterns, rich color palettes, and extravagant ornamentation, Art Deco wasn't merely a design style—it was the emblem of a burgeoning modern era, epitomizing luxury, innovation, and a forward-thinking optimism. Fast forward to today, and the charm of Art Deco design remains as compelling as ever, continuing to influence the realms of interior design and luxury home decor.
