What does Art Deco style look like?At Vinterior you’ll spot that Art Deco items are diverse, with many differences in style and substance. This is because they spanned an era of rapid development where the trend for taking classic beauty and coupling it with a nod towards machinery was very much in vogue.
Despite the differences in each piece, you’ll spot some features that are relatively constant across the era. Art Deco was renowned for its glamour: think old-school Hollywood and you’ll get the idea.
You’ll find fluid lines and hints of classical sculptures, even with some items mounted on a plinth. But peer closer and you’ll see that next to the wonderful curves lies geometric shapes and themes, contrasting deliberately with the softer lines.
Art Deco sculptures: when and whereSo, with this contradiction of differences and similarities, how is it possible to identify an Art Deco piece with any accuracy? It’s surprisingly easy. Regardless of how the piece was conceived and expressed, Art Deco relied upon certain features to be present, namely:
- Bold colours. Art Deco may not be garish, but it uses striking colour in contrast with other tones to create an eye-catching effect. Monochrome black and white would be an excellent example of this.
- Metallic components or finishes. The increasing role of machines within society was clearly present within the Art Deco era. As well as including machines and their components in some designs, metallic finishes and use of metal was common
- Mirrors. The addition of any mirrored finish adds instant glamour, the very essence of the Art Deco soul.
- Mixed media. Art Deco was all about creating drama and attention, albeit in a high-class way. Mixing medias and combining materials creates a visually fascinating effect and is often seen in furniture and accessories alike
Symbolic and mythical themes are common, along with sculptures of animals and the female form in various guises. Look out for dancers, clowns, gazelles and panthers as typical examples of beautiful Art Deco sculpture that can be found.
