In the famous words of Gatsby: "Can’t repeat the past? Why of course you can!"
Our designers have handpicked a range of frames that wouldn't look out of place in the home of Gatsby himself. So now you can capture some of that 1920s Hollywood glitz by adding some subtle decorative elements in your own home.
A trend characterised by excess and decadence has simply got to incorporate gold. So if you’re ready to add some opulent accessories to your space then this eye catching collection makes a great focal point and will finish off your look perfectly.
"An indulgent palette of black and gold defines this trend - teamed with a striking pattern in the same colourway for a sophisticated feel"
A timeless monochrome look can be achieved by adding large black and white photos to your walls. Compliment your art by framing it in matching polished wood and lacquered frames which are typical of the Art Deco trend.
GET THE LOOK
In addition to gold and black, bold and regal frame colours can be used to capture the essence of Art Deco's "high style". Deep shades of red, navy and yellow are used frequently in many Art Deco interiors.
Feel that the bright colours are too much? You could always pair your art with our silver art deco frames for a more tranquil and toned-down look.
TEXTURES & PATTERNS
Lacquered frames and accessories play a part along with a range of carefully selected patterns. Think trapezoidal, zigzagged and triangular shapes along with sweeping curves and sunburst motifs.
There are many bold and brilliant pieces of reproduction Art Deco themed posters available. With plenty of options out there, it can be difficult to narrow down the possibilities. However, some of our personal favourites include vintage adverts from the 20th Century which were futuristic in design. There are also plenty of homages to the fashion too 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 in nature, they represent the boldness of the modern era and always look great in a picture frame.
Art Deco was one of the major artistic influences of the 1920s and 30s, its opulence 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 around the world.
The Art Deco trend had a huge 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. Some of the most beautiful buildings around the world were constructed during this Golden Age, many of which make for beautiful photographs, perfect for framing. As well as architecture photography, you can find many artist illustrations of buildings and cities renown 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 the world over and dominated popular culture and architectural design from 1925-1940.
The trend was inspired by the developing technology of the 1920s which can be seen in the smooth lines and geometric shapes that are characteristic of the movement.
