The codes of art deco: which materials and colors to choose

Art deco is the first architectural style to become internationally popular.

Born between the 1st and the 2nd world war, it reached its zenith in 1925, at the International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in Paris, where its name comes from.



The influence of this style will come back up to date, thus inspiring the greatest designers of furniture such as Hugues Chevalier.

Its cradle remains in the heart of the French capital, where our Maison is established, taking to heart its mission to of perpetuating its codes across the world.

Here are the basics of this style, represented in our different creations, from sofas to desks and lightings.


Noble materials

You can opt for a living room all in velvet like the Patrick.

Or choose bronze accessories like the Paris chandelier or the Haussmann lamp.

Also, for a guaranteed 1930s effect, add marbled touches, in your dining room for example, as with the Haussmann table.



To stay in the same spirit the best colors are midnight blue, pine green, powder pink and burgundy (color of the leather covering the Club armchair here).

Finally, keep in mind to have fun while decorating, our experts will be happy to guide you, making sure you remain faithful to this style, that has become timeless now.
