Art Deco Furniture is dating from the 1920s – 1930s usually built in finely figured walnut, oak and other exotic woods like zebra-wood. The Art Deco design was first seen in Paris, France in a decorative arts exhibition in 1925. This popular design soon become the vogue all over the world, with Britain at the forefront of design in furniture. Early Art Deco Furniture was very well made and expensive to buy with the later being more heavily produced and manufactured. New materials were introduced like chrome or Bakelite handles and the wood would be heavily french polished on the more figured veneers. The Art Deco period was about luxury, style and being modern, this is why furniture from this period can fit so well into modern interiors.
