How to spot Art Deco bookcases

During the boom of industry in between the two World Wars, France created and developed the style of Art Deco, a futuristic-themed decorative arts movement that seemed to pick up where the Art Nouveau trend left off.

Considered by some to be the cultural embodiment of a craving for regularity and order, Art Deco favoured geometric, homogenous patterns, laminate surfaces and bold statement shapes. Art Deco bookcases typically feature near perfect symmetry and regularity. Rectangular shaping and richly lacquered wood finishes in walnut, oak, maple and other classic woods are notable favourite materials.

Glass-fronted Art Deco bookcases may also feature the classic sunburst design created during the period, with some pieces even flaunting chrome detail, leather inlays and diamond-shaped handles. Reminiscent of classic Hollywood film sets, Art Deco furniture has stood the test of time for its enduringly iconic and recognisable style and because it is known as one of the highest quality labels for decorative arts of the mid-20th Century.

While the Art Deco style may feel like quite a bold move in your home, it can actually be a particularly useful addition to many different styles. If going bold and brave is your thing, then it may be that your Art Deco bookcase matches the other statement pieces in your home – a sophisticated retro living room, for example. But you may find that an Art Deco bookcase is just as suited to a study or living space that is otherwise calm and neutral. If your home has clean, calm paintwork and simple soft furnishings, an Art Deco bookcase in the corner of your room could be just the quirk you need to bring that space to life and even create a talking point for your guests.
