A fireplace makes a striking focal point for any room, bringing together the decor and adding an unmistakable warmth. However, to make the most of it you’ll need a fire surround that’s in keeping with the rest of your furnishings. If you adore vintage, it’s hard to look past the appeal of Art Deco with its clean lines and funky design. Art Deco fire surrounds have an authentic appearance while still fitting even the most contemporary style of decor. Here at Vinterior we’ve got a wonderful selection of fire surrounds to choose from, all guaranteed to offer a beautiful accent to any room.

Art Deco fire surrounds: a range of styles

Whether you plan on curling up in front of the fire with a good book in the lounge or relaxing in bed with a fire roaring, there are many rooms in the house where you might find a fireplace, particularly in period properties. The style of fireplaces should complement the rest of the room; even if you want to create a centrepiece, your fire surround shouldn’t be overwhelming.

The Art Deco movement began in France in the 1920s and then rapidly expanded, soon reaching America. Capturing the gaiety of the atmosphere that followed the end of World War I, Art Deco is fun, frivolous and fabulous.

A highly decorative style, Art Deco takes clean lines and adds in geometric shapes to create a bold and punchy aesthetic. This style was a significant step change from the ornate carvings and intricate detailing that had been the sign of luxury in previous generations. It is these key features that sets the Art Deco look quite apart from heritage and antique designs, and makes it more accessible for the contemporary home.

At Vinterior we love the appeal of Art Deco and you’ll find a range of furniture in this style. Our Art Deco fire surrounds are functional yet beautiful to look at, embracing all the very best features of this style of decor.

Choosing your Art Deco fire surround

When choosing your fire surround there are a number of things to take into consideration, including the size of your fire and room. Fire surrounds come in a wide range of materials including wood, stone and marble so you can pick one that fits the dimensions and decor.

Maple, satinwood and walnut are three of the most sumptuous woods used frequently in Art Deco design but you will find a number of other types of wood also experimented with when you explore our listings. If you don’t want a look that is too bold and brave, look for a fireplace that is simple yet striking, with lines that are strong and materials that will complement the rest of your deor. Colours are typically kept simple, allowing them to blend with a diverse range of other styles.

A very linear design, Art Deco works well as a fire surround and can create an irresistible focal point for the rest of the room. While this style will, of course, work well in a room that already has a 20s vibe, you may also be surprised at how well Art Deco fire surrounds work with more contemporary styling and angular mid-century furniture.
