Art Deco in Interior Design

via SimonPix

As it emphasizes geometric forms, the Art Deco interior design style is defined by spheres, polygons, zigzags, and sunburst motifs, with the elements arranged in symmetrical patterns. Materials frequently used in the construction of the furniture are aluminum, stainless steel, chrome, and plastics. Stained glass, inlays, and lacquer can also be seen in Art Deco interiors. Egyptian pyramids, sphinxes, and animal skins and prints, as well as ivory and mother of pearl are also commonly seen in Art Deco interior design. In the US, the best-known examples of Art Deco architecture are the skyscrapers in New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. One example of Art Deco architecture is the Chrysler Building in New York.
