We know that we are a little biased, but we love the Art Deco style. We are not sure if it is because of the beautiful style itself, or the patterns found within Art Deco, or maybe it is just because Art Deco is such a luxurious style. Either way, Art Deco represents classic beauty in both art and design. Have a look at some of our art pieces that represent the Art Deco style.

What is Art Deco?

Art Deco originated in Paris with an exhibition in 1925, that combined the notions of luxury and modern style. Art Deco combines expensive materials, such as gold or silver with amazing craftsmanship in a modern setting. Art Deco was not a style for the less than wealthy, as pieces of furniture sometimes included inlays of ivory or silver, and the jewelry of the Art Deco period had diamonds (often rose-cut) with platinum and jade or other expensive materials. Lots of designers and architects loved the Art Deco style for its simplicity and love for patterns. Often, the style was used to decorate luxury rooms on ships and hotels. However, the Art Deco style fell out of fashion with the entrance of the Great Depression in the late 1920s.

Examples of Art Deco

Not only do examples of Art Deco exist within our art, they also exist in some of the most famous buildings in the world, most notably the Empire State Building in New York City and the Lincoln Theater in Miami. The Empire State Building is probably the most famous example of Art Deco style in the world, and was once one of the tallest buildings in the world. The building still receives millions of tourists each year. There are many examples within the United States and around the world.

We have many artists who use some of the principles of Art Deco and uses those principles to demonstrate major art ideas within Art Deco, such as patterns, repetition, simplicity, and luxury metals. For example, leaves, a common theme within Art Deco, is used frequently by artists. In addition to geometric shapes framed with luxury metallics, there are also elements of stylized flowers, and lines amazing in their form and shapes. Art Deco is clean and simple, with hints of wealth.

If you want to hark back to the 1920s, think about gin and flappers, and jazz music — perhaps you should consider adding Art Deco to your artworks. It is really hard not to fall in love with the amazing detail of Art Deco, when it seems as if Jay Gatsby is just around the corner waiting to take us away in his roadster to a fabulous party. Why not have a look at some of our Art Deco pieces, and perhaps pair them with some of our architectural pieces, especially those from the period, such as the Empire State Building. If the 1920s are calling, you should always, always, answer that call. Who knows, maybe the 1920s will call more than once.
