Art deco designs became very popular when the world was recovering from the ravages of World War I. It was a time of celebration and paved the way for opulence in design. Vivid colors were used with heavy leanings towards black, gold and green. Glass tops for tables coupled with chrome legs that gradually led to use of plastics. Marble was often used for cabinet and table tops and deep and a dark color for furniture that is heavily lacquered to imitate ebony which was expensive was popular as well. Animal fur and skin was another favorite and Ivory was used by the very rich to add to the design. The design was ostentatious to say the least but modern times have used this to mix with contemporary designs and produce lovely results. Here are some art deco inspired furniture that may be ostentatious but still wonderful to use in our homes.
