Coming to life in the mid 1920's, Art Deco style is best known as a highly decorative, geometric design-based style nodding to the glamour of the roaring 20's. There is a lot to be said about the opulence of this style that remained well into the 1940's, as well as resurging many times since.
Art Deco style features geometric shapes, jagged lines, and abstract representations of fans and flowers. The 1980's captured many of these references, simplifying them for the time, ramping up the colours and materials used in the process including brass, chrome, lacquer, and mirror.
You can lend the Art Deco treatment to any 1980's space, or refurb Art deco buildings, homes and apartments from the mid 1920's through to the mid 1930's. If you understand the elements of what makes an Art Deco home, you can integrate these into properties from any period, including contemporary houses and apartments.
