Art deco inspired

Art deco is one of my favourite design styles. It is a fun mix of  bourgeois splendor and industrial features. It symbolizes  an industrial revolution of the beginning of 20th century. On the one hand we’ve got traditional ornamental motifs , on the other hand-futuristic, geometric shapes. Who would have thought that these two can look so good together?! Chrysler Building  in New York is one of the most notable art deco designs.

This style is delightfully crazy!

You can see many art deco influences in one of my favourite movies: ‘Metropolis’ by Fritz Lang:

And now  for the decorating!

There is this new apartment-house being built in Poland and it will be an art deco tribute!
I’m amazed how close to the original art deco concept they are planning to decorate the interior.
Here is a quick sneak peek of how lobby is going to look like:

I start packing! Yes, I can live in a lobby!

Nowadays, classic art deco furniture can be seen as a bit outdated, too massive and patchy. But you can easily add a modern twist by mixing classic art deco furniture with minimalistic modern pieces. Example :

What do you think about art deco? Would you consider decorating your house like that?
