The essence of Art Déco is in playful geometric shapes and rich colour contrasts with a focus on gold elements, graceful floral motifs and luxury materials, such as velvet, silk, glass and precious metal. When it comes to extravagance and luxury at home or work, Art Déco will be at the heart of it.
The Art Déco style experienced its heyday in Paris in the mid-1920s as a modern replacement for the Jugendstil. At the same time, the Bauhaus style was flourishing in Germany. Art Déco was characterised by abstract, simple forms and the use of high-quality materials that were exotic at the time.
Typical features of Art Déco?
For a piece of furniture or lighting to be classed as “Art Déco”, it must have most or all of the following characteristics:

Materials, velvet, silk or marble
CREATIVE CEILING LIGHTS THAT SET THE TONE
Warm glare-free Art Déco ceiling lights, with their luxurious individuality, never fail to add beauty to a room. Gold - preferably in combination with black - is what we’d personally recommend.
Rich black surfaces and fine details in gold and brass - define the Art Déco style. In graceful geometric shapes, wall lights will flatter the rest of your glamorous interior and give your room added X-Factor.
Artistic intuition was the driving force behind Art Déco's design in the 1920s. Today, the original designers' use of clear lines and rich colours continues to be the inspiration behind twenty-first-century pieces.
