The Hallmark of Art Deco Furniture

Art Deco furniture by Juliettes Interiors.

Characterised by a combination of geometric shapes, contrasting hues and intricate details, Art Deco once promised a brighter, more prosperous future for all. And it’s no wonder this iconic 1920s style remains hugely popular a whole century later – particularly when it comes to interior design. Let’s take a closer look at the qualities of Art Deco furniture, and how to incorporate it into your home.


Art Deco was born in defiance of the organic, whimsical styles popularised during the late Victorian era. It emerged during a period that saw rapid technological advancement following the First World War, famed for its glamour and extravagance. This was also a time of intensive expression amongst artists, with Bauhaus, Cubism, Futurism and Surrealism all playing a part in forming this inherently modern style. As people looked ahead, the Art Deco movement served as a welcome distraction from years of conflict, becoming a symbol of both luxury and change.

Shapes and Silhouettes

One of the defining qualities of Art Deco is its use of geometric elements. A unique blend of straight lines, sharp angles and symmetrical patterns to create a sense of order and balance, juxtaposed with curves and swooping shapes for the appearance of fluidity and movement. During the 1920s, this style was evident in all aspects of design. It therefore made its way into people’s homes in many different ways – from architecture to fashion to decorative arts. Today, however, it is most prevalent in furniture.

Luxurious Design

True Art Deco design emphasises wealth and opulence, incorporating high-quality materials including exotic woods, precious metals, and marble. These components, in addition to intricate detailing and finishes, create an elegance and sophistication unrivalled by any other design style. Art Deco furniture is often associated with high-end luxury and has been used in some of the world’s most prestigious and exclusive hotels, restaurants, and residences.

When it comes to colour, this style is famous for its bold and daring use of rich jewel tones. This includes emerald greens, sapphire blues and ruby reds, contrasted with bronze, silver and gold tones and monochrome for a striking visual impact. 

Style and Functionality

In addition to its opulence and high quality, Art Deco furniture is flawlessly versatile. It can be easily adapted to suit a wide range of interior design schemes and property types, from city apartments to grand estates. Whether your home is contemporary and minimal or traditional and ornate, it is a practical yet infinitely stylish choice. And, at Juliettes Interiors, all of our designs are fully customisable, meaning you’ll always be able to find the perfect fit for your space.
