Add Art Deco Design Appeal with Sleek Surfaces & Gilded Details
Embrace the opulence and appeal of the 1920s with modern décor and lighting that feature gilded details, repetitive geometric shapes, and reflective surfaces. When incorporating Art Deco décor and lighting into your home, look to The Great Gatsby for style inspiration. Start with a clean black-and-white color palette and add in plenty of silver or gold accents. Search out pieces with straight lines and repeating patterns—accent tables with metal legs make it easy to incorporate squares, diamonds, semi-circles, and other geometric shapes. Add a gold-plated mirror on the wall, opt for a pair of marble-accented modern lamps, and install crystal-covered chandeliers or sconces for eye-catching illumination in any space.
Opt for Mid-Century Modern Décor with Natural, Neutral Elements
Popularized during the 1950s and 60s, mid-century modern style is defined by a straightforward aesthetic, a neutral color palette, and a focus on function. Whether you’re searching for a credenza for your dining room or a coffee table for a mid-century living room, look for low, horizontal structures with exposed, splayed legs and streamlined silhouettes. Natural woods and wood veneers can be incorporated into everything from furniture to modern pendant lights to decorative accents. Finally, add lighting that speaks to the time period: With sunburst-style linear arms each supporting an individual rounded bulb, Sputnik chandeliers and other similar light fixtures are a hallmark of mid-century modern lighting.
Embrace an Of-the-Moment Aesthetic with Contemporary Takes on Modern Décor
Commonly confused with modern design, contemporary décor is a distinct style movement on its own—one that is constantly evolving as it aims to keep up with current trends and embrace a futuristic feel. Contemporary décor prioritizes style: Look for curved silhouettes instead of straight lines, decorative accents more ornamental than they are functional, and contrast through the use of color. Simplicity still reigns supreme in contemporary décor, which embraces the clutter-free minimalism of modern style, so choose unadorned furniture and keep home accents at a minimum. Place a pair of modern vases on either side of a mantle, fill space on an empty shelf with a striking sculpture, or add abstract wall art that complements your room’s color palette.
Whether you prefer the gilded details of the Art Deco period, the low-profile look of mid-century modern décor, or the old-meets-new appeal of contemporary design, you’ll find pieces to fit your home in our collection.
