Art Deco style is widely known and easily recognizable. Synonymous with luxury and exclusivity, it is characterized by its geometric lines, its bright and intense colors.
Often, it is named "retro" or "vintage". Today, he still influences contemporary architecture and design. Today, we present two modern apartments and their interiors arranged in this style of design. If you want to invite the Art Deco spirit to your home, our gallery can give you some ideas how to succeed.
The Art Deco style: a contemporary interpretation
Some art critics say that Art Deco is neither an artistic movement nor a current, but the expression of human progress in terms of aesthetics and technologies. Appeared for the first time in the 1910s, in a few years Art Deco is a worldwide success. The term "art deco" comes from the abbreviation "decorative arts". It was not until the 1960s that the term "art deco" appeared. It is not at all difficult to recognize this style of design which is characterized by its tapestries, its decorative objects. Noble materials and his paintings. Art deco can be minimalist but, in its traditional context, it is not very often. In the two contemporary interiors that we will present to you, however, it can be defined as minimalist. It is often seen as a style of "character" and with a strong presence of objects and different shapes. In modern design, it is represented only by a limited number of objects: armchair, table, decorative objects, paintings and others. In general, Art Deco shows a taste for noble, precious and exotic materials among which we discover alabaster, ivory, wood as well as bronze, brass and glass.
Contemporary Art Deco inspired living room, Smidt Studio design
The first apartment we are going to introduce is designed by the Belarusian company Smidt Studio . The accent in this interior is the theme of chosen colors: yellow and purple. Some elements are classic and add a touch of vintage: wooden doors, flooring, dark wood bookcase. At the same time, contemporary furniture refreshes the space and makes it more modern.

The dining room is open to the living room. Here we find the same colors and a mix of style very successful: armchair type chairs in purple Art Deco style combined with a wooden table of classic design and two hanging luminaires of modern and minimalist design.
The dining room
Most decorative objects are simple, sometimes made of metal. The noble materials are not absent, but their presence is very moderate: it is the key to a successful interior design and decoration.

A gray carpet with a geometric pattern in white decorates the floor covered in wood parquet. It is also the element that delimits the living room and the dining room. On the coffee table is a metal candle holder designed by Fritz Nagel .
The lights in the living room add an elegant and modern touch
This interior is a very successful mix of modern and Art Deco: authentic objects, contemporary furniture , original decoration and temperate colors. Let's continue our visit in the entrance of this beautiful apartment whose floral wallpaper wall is reflected in the mirror to the right of the photograph below:

One of the first elements to be seen, as soon as one is in the living room, is the brilliant floor covered with white marble. In the background, on the right, a wooden side table painted in gray and a stool of the same violet color found in the living room and the dining room, have been carefully installed.

The wall above the side table is decorated with an abstract art painting. The luminaires are different in style: an industrial-style luminaire is suspended above the table, while all along the ceiling are large, rectangular, white light fixtures that are more of a modern element. The wall is dressed in floral wallpaper: a must for interiors in the Art Deco style. This time, the mix of modern and authentic is again very successful!

This apartment is very spacious and is 147m². Yet it has been laid out in a minimalist way to optimize and make the space even bigger. This explains the lack of bulky furniture and the temperate decor.
