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....

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 SociÃ
00a9.png

des artistes dÃ
00a9.png
corateurs 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 DÃ
00a9.png
coratifs 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.

I did a search for threads with "art deco" in the title and found this old one---started in 2008 and dormant since 2016! So I don't expect to get much discussion going, but nonetheless, here are a couple of photos of the one room of my house that I did in deco style: the powder room! (There are now some pictures decorating the wall, not shown in these photos, and that little table is going to be replaced by something more consistent with the style.)
