Art Deco brings to mind a glamorous era of brilliant architecture, striking interior design, elegant furniture, and superb objets d'art. The term evokes an era of the 1920s and 1930s that prized elegant design elements combined with exotic materials, subtle colors, and the finest workmanship. This amply illustrated survey traces the origins of Deco interiors in Europe and follows its American transformation, with concepts of beauty in design expanded to include stream-lined and machine-made interpretations. Many of the most beloved buildings and their interior spaces in America's cities were Deco-inspired. But Art Deco is not just an historic term. As we see in this full color book, a number of today's designers are incorporating Deco elements into contemporary settings. Here, both interiors and furniture exemplify the sinuous lines and geometric shapes of Deco as part of today's interiors. A visual feast, this book will inspire and inform.
