What is the Art Deco Interior Design Style?

If you love an opulent, luxurious-looking home, you may want to decorate in the Art Deco interior design style. Short for “Arts Décoratifs,” Art Deco is a design style that became extremely popular in the 1920s and continues to inspire us today.

What is the Art Deco Interior Design Style?

Art Deco homes bring the Roaring 20s back to life. Forget minimalism; in an art deco home, you’ll find glamorous gold accents, bold geometric prints, and loud pieces of art. However, there are no frills in art deco design. Furniture is streamlined, sleek, and full of clean lines.

Art deco furniture is characterized by:

  • Vivid colors and prints
  • Angular and pointed silhouettes
  • Mixed materials including hard metals, glass, and upscale fabrics

Back in its hey day, The Spruce declares that the art deco style “emphasized modernity and machines, and at the same time, it was considered elegant and functional.” Keep reading to learn about our favorite Art deco pieces sourced from local Bay Area furniture stores.
