About Art Deco

Everyone compliments you on your favorite vase, the squarish one with staggered points, and you're pleased as punch whenever they get the art style right: it's Art Deco, and it makes a beautiful and bold statement in your home. The defining art movement of the 1920s and part of the 1930s, Art Deco's elaborate ornamentation was a perfect embodiment of the glamor of the Roaring Twenties. It fuses an industrial look with geometry and color, and symmetry is also important. Given the importance of industry, it's no surprise that popular materials used during the period include aluminum, stainless steel, chrome, and a plastic called Bakelite. Expect to see high-contrasting, vivid hues, too. You've got a vase, but why stop there? Complete the look with an Art Deco lamp and some furniture to transform your living room into a vintage-inspired work of art. Sellers on eBay have vintage and antique home décor and furniture, as well as modern replica pieces. You embody the bold personality of the Art Deco period, and there's no reason your home shouldn't do the same.
