The History of Art Deco
The Art Deco movement originated in the 1920s, its name deriving from the Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes in Paris.
Characterized by exaggerated curves, clean lines, and symmetrical patterns, Art Deco style embodies extravagance and high style. From the 1920s to the 1940s, Americans embraced this decorative style in all areas of their homes. Even during the Great Depression, this luxurious style flourished and adapted to the times, becoming a more affordable, paired-down version.
The glamorous Art Deco style influenced everything from home decor, fashion, film, transportation, and architecture. The Chrysler Building in New York City is considered the epitome of Art Deco architecture.
A Glimpse into The Great Gatsby
Did you ever daydream of living in The Great Gatsby time period or attending one of Jay Gatsby’s iconic soirees? If so, you may find yourself drawn to the allure of Art Deco design.
All it takes is a quick glance inside Jay Gatsby’s mansion to get inspired. The heavy influence of Art Deco is apparent in nearly every room.
While the timeless novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald put a spotlight on the style, Art Deco interior design inspiration goes far beyond Gatsby’s private estate.
If you are looking for Art Deco architecture, the Palais de Chaillot in Paris and the Fairmont Peace Hotel in Shanghai are considered among the most beautiful Art Deco buildings in the world.
Then, of course, there is Miami, Florida. The Art Deco style took over South Beach in Miami when 800+ buildings and structures were built between 1923 and 1943, creating the well-known tourist area: the Art Deco Historic District.
The Miami Art Deco Historic District is brimming with colorful buildings and intriguing, intricate shapes that give you a one-of-a-kind glimpse into the bygone era.
