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!
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.
