Five essentials of art-deco home design
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:
1. Aim for stripped-down simplicity
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
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
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.
4. Be able to entertain well
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
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.
