Five essentials of art-deco home design

16-10-2017
by The Furniture Rooms

Timeless style never truly ages, which is why more and more homeowners pursue art-deco furniture pieces for their home. But with such a wealth of options available, how do you discern between the classy and the kitsch? And what items look great no matter how they’re set in your room?

Here is our list of recommendations for the key aesthetics and items that will fit inside any home:

Deco dining chair1. Aim for stripped-down simplicity

Vintage Dining Chairs

Picking out a period chair is often difficult. Ideally, aim for a vintage item that is pared back but still possesses trademark deco angles and curves. Remember that while boldness is a big part of the style, going with wood will draw the eye with minimal effort and work in any room.

2. Marry beauty and class

Dressing Tables

Classic deco design deploys mirrors to maximise space and bring in sunlight. Settling on a statement dresser provides an elegant centrepiece for your room while working to save on space.

3. Enjoy some effortless cool

Lounge Chairs

For many, the signature deco image comes from the bars and lounges of the roaring 30’s and 40’s. If you’re wanting to replicate their iconic seating, aim for an item in a lighter leather. Rounded edges also work to subvert the traditional hard lines of the style and softly modernise the room.

Nothing says, ‘down with prohibition’ like an elegant drinks cabinet. While these are often hard to find in good condition, aiming for clean-opening fronting to safely display beverages looks great. And being constructed by a treated wood like walnut instantly adds timeless value.

5. Try for timeless Class

Work Desk

Another classic is the deco desk. Made from solid units, these items are perfect to work from, coupling rounded curvatures with hard lines – mixing a striking aesthetic with comfort. Top models are built from oak with a leather inset that makes a statement by itself or complements any room.


Coming across a genuine classic can be difficult. So, don’t forget that you can shop online with us at thefurniturerooms.co.uk for more examples. And we also offer free UK mainland shipping on all orders to help make your purchase as seamless as possible.
