Art Deco Bookends

Art Deco furniture is characterized by its celebration of modern life. More than its emphasis on natural wood grains and focus on traditional craftsmanship, Art Deco furniture is an ode to the glamour of the “Roaring Twenties.”

The term Art Deco derives from the name of a large decorative arts exhibition held in Paris in 1925. Art Deco textile designers employed dazzling floral motifs and vivid colors, and while Art Deco furniture makers respected the dark woods and modern metals with which they worked, they frequently incorporated decorative embellishments in their pieces, such as exotic animal hides as well as veneers. Today, the style is still favored by designers looking to infuse interiors with an air of luxury and sophistication.

From mother-of-pearl inlaid vitrines to chrome aviator chairs, bold and inventive works in the Art Deco style include chaise longues (also known as chaise lounges) and curved armchairs.

At 1stDibs, browse Art Deco furniture by designer, including works by Georg Jensen and René Lalique, or by category, from angular chairs and sculptural burl wood tables to lighting and decorative objects.
