Bring The Art Deco Trend Into Your Commercial Environment

Art Deco is arguably one of the most iconic styles of the last century, representing the glamour and sophistication of the Roaring 20s. Flamboyant, stylish and extravagant, the style is characterised by rich colours, bold geometry and decadent detail work. The trend is having a resurgence in popularity within interior design, with many people wanting to bring an element of luxe into their commercial schemes – recreating the rich, evocative scenes of The Great Gatsby.

Indeed, top design and décor shows such as Deco Off and Maison et Objet in Paris appear to be celebrating the theatricality of the Art Deco movement. The shows have both recently demonstrated the enduring popularity of this look, with designs that were both deliberately understated and richly complex.

So how can you bring the Art Deco style into your commercial project to create an on-trend, yet timeless, look? There are a number of ways to incorporate the aesthetic, depending on whether you’re looking to undertake a full redecoration of the space or perhaps just by adding in a few key pieces to pay homage to the style.

Focus on streamlined shapes, experiment with animal prints, incorporate geometric shapes, embrace statement lighting and mirrors, opt for sleek materials, hang contemporary art, choose rich woods and find furniture with strong lines.

Gatsby Tile 1920's and 30's Style CTDA

Another way to incorporate the Art Deco look is through the use of tiles. A brand new range for 2020, our Gatsby collection is inspired by the unmistakable 1920s & 30s style. Combining elegant design with a modern colour palette, this range can create stunning wall features within commercial and hospitality settings.

Featuring a metallic effect, the glazed ceramic wall tile collection is comprised of four designs, from the fan-shape of Glam to the arched pattern of Elegance. Presented in a palette of dusty pinks and navy blues, as well as shimmering golds and silvers, specifiers and designers can choose from seven colourways to create powerful and distinctive looks.

We hope our blog has inspired you to embrace the decadence of the Art Deco trend, to create a commercial environment that will create an inspiring first impression to guests and customers.
