The luxury of Art Deco

Posted on 08 October 2016

If like us you have been watching Channel 9’s The Block recently, then like us you will have Art Deco on your minds. In The World of domu this week, we wanted to explore this timeless movement and we believe it can compliment any modern home. 

Decorating with Art Deco furniture does not get boring, either. With many different materials, including the likes of wood, marble, chrome, plastic, and glass, this style is often seen applied to chairs, tables, cabinetry, as well as beds and chandeliers. As you can see, you can decorate with Art Deco pieces if you wanted to and bring a sense of old Hollywood Glamour or New York Regency luxury to your home.

Geometric forms, bold colours and symmetrical patterns – this is what comes to mind when describing an Art Deco piece. Although the peak of its popularity dates back to the 1920s/30s, to this day, Art Deco brings with it an undertone of luxury and glamour. Check out The Block's Julia & Sasha's take on a Modern Art Deco living room below:

We love the vibrant colours of the art and the brass details of the furniture pieces! And its not by chance that these pieces are designed this way. As the Art Deco movement started shortly after The First World War, designers wanted to recreate the optimism and positivity of the society at the time and reflect this in their designs. Nowadays, it is not rare to find homebuyers wanting to recreate a little avant-garde look in their homes. To help guide you in the right direction, we thought we would create a short list of how you can add a piece of Art Deco to your home and do so in style!
