Art Deco is often associated with luxury. From 1920 to the present day, this style of interior design is for an elite. It is also a movement characterizing the design of industrial societies and associated with an idle and urban lifestyle. The aim of Art Deco was twofold: on the one hand, to distance oneself from the heritage of Art Nouveau, and on the other hand to innovate by creating a functional art adapted to the needs of modern life. At that time, many artists were experimenting, while industrialists were opening up to art. Works of art were often intended for an elitist clientele. This is the first time that furniture has been marketed and accessible to a large number of people. This furniture introduces the use of new precious and exotic woods. Art deco shows a taste for precious materials: alabaster, ivory, exotic woods. The colors are alive and contrasted.
At first, inspired by the eighteenth century in France, floral motifs are very present. Little by little they tend to disappear in favor of more geometric forms. Art Deco begins to draw inspiration from other artistic movements: Fauvism, Cubism, Russian Constructivism and Italian Futurism. Technical progress and the appearance of new machines are two very important factors that affirm the search for a new aesthetic. The first plastics as well as bronze, gilded or nickel-plated brass, glass, bakelite are used first of all in Art Deco. Some consider that Art Deco is neither movement nor current, it is an expression of a symptom of modernity and industrial progress. It is certain that Art Deco marks a period when the world is experiencing a prodigious creative fruition in the fields of visual arts on an international scale.
To adopt the Art Deco style at home, it is not necessary to invest in exotic materials and very expensive furniture and design. You can choose one or more walls and put wallpaper with geometric patterns (the chevron, the zig-zag, the fan, the half-moon, the quarter moon or the radiant sun).
