Art Deco furniture is not just another piece of furniture. It is one of the longest and most significant movements in the history of design. It became so popular because it was more than just art. In the aftermath of World War I of 1925, there was great optimism among the masses, and the artists wanted it to be reflected in their work. That's how the Art Deco movement began. Artists showed their optimism through vivid colors and playful motifs that represented an avant-garde way of thinking and made them one of the best-known design movements.
Perhaps the exotic materials and bold colors reminiscent of the high spirits of that time are recognizable in Art Deco furniture. Art Deco furniture is characterized by the use of exotic woods and materials such as ebony and ivory. Striking lines, whether straight or angular, are the most recognizable feature of this furniture.
The Art Deco movement was revived in the 1960s and is still popular today. The use of new styles and the carefree attitude that radiates the designs are the main reasons for their popularity.
Furniture from the movement contains many types of materials, including wood, marble, metal, plastic, paint and even animal skin. Typical types of furniture of the era include angular chairs, large lacquered wooden cabinets, beds with oversized head and footboards, and tables, especially bar tables.
Art Deco furniture is now considered antique and is equally popular with collectors and art lovers.
