The Origin of Art Deco

It started as a design movement in visual arts, architecture, and design in the 1920s (aka the golden industrial age) and flourished despite the 1930s’ economic depression. Combining modern styles with exquisite craftsmanship and lavish materials, Art Deco embodies luxury, chic, and glamour.

Luxury Meets Vintage Modernist

If there is one key theme of the iconic Art Deco style, it is its aim to make a bold statement in interior decor and architecture.

Art Deco bathrooms would typically feature reflective surfaces and materials such as stainless steel, silvers, chromes, and mirrors for the vanity cabinets, faucets, and lighting. It wouldn’t be unusual to find an ornate freestanding sink and bath under a crystal chandelier against a backdrop of sleek marble finishing and distinctive geometric tiles, or brass and ebony fixtures and furnishings.

Art Deco uses accessories and decorative elements that feature bold, fluid, and curving symmetrical motifs such as stylized geometric shapes and lines. Its colours are similarly striking and vivid, accentuated with gleaming silver, chrome, and black.
