Home Décor Series: Art Deco


Home decor has become such a creative form of self-expression. It allows you to showcase your creativity and personality through the style of your home. Over the next few weeks, we will be covering various home decor styles and how you can incorporate elements into your own home. This week we introduce you to the art deco style.

If you’re a fan of The Great Gatsby and wished you lived in the roaring 1920s, the Art Deco style of home decor is right for you. Defined by distinctive geometric patterns and rich colors, it got its start in the 1920s. In recent years, it has re-emerged as one of the premier styles of home decor in the 21st century.

Art Deco

Even though rich colors and geometric shapes characterize this style, it is extremely symmetrical. It also is one of the popular streamlined decor styles available today. One example of a more “muted” version of this style can be found in this New York City apartment, whose most distinctive feature is the armchairs’ streamlined shape with origins in 1930s France. Rather than seeing crazy colors, this hideaway softens for the eyes. We give all thanks to its all-white appearance.

However, Art Deco can also incorporate such elements as over-the-top glamour, marquetry coated walls, and deep, rich woods for the more adventurous amongst us.


Incorporating the Art Deco style elements can be as simple as incorporating the right floors into your room. In addition, we provide a wide variety of Art Deco floors in a variety of styles, such as:

  • Carpeting
  • Laminate flooring
