Many bold and brilliant pieces of reproduction Art Deco themed posters are available. It can be challenging to narrow down the possibilities with plenty of online options. However, some of our personal favourites include vintage adverts from the 20th Century, futuristic in design. There are also plenty of homages to fashion, which can be framed, think Vogue covers. And finally, black and white architectural photography can look incredible. The choice is yours when it comes to Art Deco options.


Advertisements from the Art Deco era remain highly sought after in the modern age. A.M. Cassandre, a pioneer of the machine poster style, popularised the airbrushing of images and revolutionised this discipline for years to come. Art deco advertisements are striking and often futurist; they represent the boldness of the modern era and always look great in a picture frame.


Art Deco was one of the significant artistic influences of the 1920s and 30s; its luxury and nature endure today, providing the bedrock for some of the most popular styles ever. Its influence can be spotted in various fashion publications such as Vogue and catwalks worldwide.


The Art Deco trend had a considerable impact on the architects of the time, with many buildings following the 1925' Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes' taking inspiration from the fair. As a result, some of the most beautiful buildings were constructed during this Golden Age. Many of which make for captivating photographs - perfect for framing. As well as architectural photography, you can find many artist illustrations of buildings and cities renowned for their Art Deco heritage.

Art Deco first appeared in France; its name derives from the 1925 'Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes'. This trend was adopted worldwide and dominated popular culture and architectural design from 1925 to 1940.

The trend was inspired by the developing technology of the 1920s, which can be seen in the smooth lines and geometric shapes characteristic of the movement.
