Art deco is generally sleek, with touches of drama in furniture and decor pieces. The feel is very glamorous with lots of industrial metals and lacquered wood accents. To add to its dramatic feel, black or a darker shade of purple is used as the main color. In order to counteract the dark feel of the color palette, table lamps with frosted shades can be used. This design is known for being intentionally overly decorated with bold colorful wall art, bronze accessories, and etched glass vases.

If you like Art deco, then think angles because it’s usually the angles that give away this styling. Think dramatic. Think theatrical.
