Stepping into August, let's turn our style lens towards an era of luxury, glamour, and exuberance - welcome to the world of Art Deco design. This month at FOLIO, we're peeling back the velvet curtain on this highly stylized design that echoes modern design.

Derived from the 1925 Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes, Art Deco design is all about drama and elegance with signature elements of geometric patterns, sculptural pieces and gorgeous curves. It transports you to the dazzling era of the 1920s and '30s with eye-catching vertical lines, mesmerizing zigzags, chevrons, and starbursts. These geometric motifs and streamlined forms act as visual soundwaves, pulsating with the rhythm of the Jazz Age, while simultaneously foreshadowing the Modernist era. 

The palette leans towards neutrals but boldly injects pinks, teals, dark greens and yellow hues with luxe materials like metallics, marble, channel tufting, and glass to make substantive statements. Art Deco furniture transforms every room into a plush sanctuary. Imagine lavish gilded mirrors, sleek chrome fixtures, elegant chaise lounges, and grand marble coffee tables, each radiating a feel of timeless elegance and sophistication.

As we close this time-traveling journey through the Art Deco Design Style, we invite you to recreate this luxurious aesthetic in your own space.
