Art Deco is a design style that was first recognised in France after the First World War and grew throughout Europe from the 1920s through to the 1940s. Art Deco furniture typically features geometric shapes, glass and metal, bold colours and elaborate motifs. Architecture and houses from the 1930s often reflect the art deco style with examples including geometric doorways and flat roofs on homes. Also much of the architecture in and around the London Underground network features art deco styling.
If you are trying to recreate the Art Deco look in your own home then you might like to invest in some angular shaped furniture, shiny chrome furnishings and mirror tiles along with anything featuring mother of pearl. Zig zags and stepped designs will fit in with this style and furniture made from shiny veneered wood would also be complementary.
Doorsan sell a wide range of internal and external doors for your home. If you are looking for an art deco style of door then you may be interested in our Atlanta internal door in primed white finish, which is ready to paint. This door features strong raised effects in rectangular shapes and this appears on both the front and back of the door. A complementary glazed version features and vertical pane of glass in the centre. Either style can be painted in the colour of your choice to accommodate your own interior scheme. If you are looking for an art deco door with an oak finish then you may like the Euston internal door which features raised mouldings in a ribbed effect creating a border around a central oak panel in the centre. If you wish to highlight a diamond feature then our Sassari door features a modest central design of grooves forming diamond shapes. This is also available in a glazed version with a diamond panel of safety glass in the centre of the door.
