The Art Deco style of the 1920s and 1930s was a conscious effort to simplify the elaborate Art Nouveau, reflecting the machine-age ideals of speed and glamour. Sleek, streamlined forms connote the elegance and sophistication of this new found, casual lifestyle. Inviting and functional furnishings soon evolved, making entertaining comfortable as well as trendy. The beautifully lacquered woods, chrome mounts and glass elements exhibited in this wonderful bar are characteristic of the popular materials of the period. By 1935, the Art Deco phenomena declined in favor of the more extreme forms of Modernism. Today, the furnishings of this bygone era are enjoying an amazing resurgence in popularity, in which quality pieces such as this example are becoming increasingly scarce.
