I watch Poirot and love what I see.

You could always have one art deco room. I fancy having one art deco room, one art nouveau room, etc. Like in Biltmore there's the Chipendale bedroom.... Some day.

Nice! French? German? Any markings?

What exactly is a good definition of Art Deco? I was introduced into it a few months ago in a graphic design class, and it was not until now that I really like this style of art and would like to get into it. Any Artist or book suggestions too?

I posted this a while ago on a different forum:

Art Deco
1920-1940 (approx)

A group of French artists formed La Société des artistes décorateurs in the early years of the 20th century. They planned to hold a large exhibition of French decorative art objects in 1915 ....but World War 1 obviously forced them to postpone the event.

Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes

This exhibition was opened in Paris in 1925. The luxury objects shown were created for a new wealthy elite who wanted modern objects for the 'machine age' but found pure 'high' Modernism (such as that exhibited by the Bauhaus) to be too austere and not expressive enough for their flamboyant tastes.


It is an extraordinarily diverse style with many facets and many influences which branch off in different directions. It became a very popular style in the United States with Manhattan having many of the most famous examples of Art Deco architecture.

Mostly, Art deco is a style which celebrated the modern world with great creative fervor and dynamism.

Art Déco was not taken seriously by many art historians for a long time ...as decorative or aplied arts were not generally seen as being as important as fine art. However, Art Déco has increasingly gained acceptance as an important aspect of 20th century Modern art and design heritage. The best Art Déco objects are some of the most exquisite things made in the 20th century.

I'm all for repurposing vintage office buildings to residential but I find the lobbies (which are often beautiful) usually lack a warm, homey atmosphere.


I much prefer a lobby like that of the Powhatan Apartments in Chicago.

No Miami Beach on the list? Seriously? That's like making a list of great basketball players and omitting Michael Jordan.
