Art Deco style conjures for most a cool, clean vision of interiors with angular forms, stylised figures, exotic woods and materials, linear decoration and modern simplicity.

It is generally considered to have flourished in the 1920s and 1930s, reaching its zenith in the years between the first and second world wars. However, in reality the style was evolving as early in 1900 in reaction to other styles, but it wasn’t until the 1925″ Paris Exposition Des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes” that it was recognised as a separate movement that was totally detached inĀ  terms of intellectual stimulus and interpretation from other existing styles. The exhibition acted as a show case for many new designers and interior decorators such as Edgar Brandt, Paul Follot and Jacques-Emile Ruhlmann and was eventually to lend its name to the produce of this bold new era. Art Deco came into being partly as a fusion of various influences and partly as a deliberate rejection of previous traditional styles.
