The interiors world is buzzing this year with colourful trends and bold statements, and on that subject let’s talk about something that’s making a serious comeback – Art Deco. It’s the roaring twenties all over again as we step into 2024, and the allure of Art Deco is just as strong now as it was back then. This style isn’t just about fancy buildings and glitzy parties; it’s a whole vibe that’s capturing hearts all over again. I’m Liz Clarkson, Furniture Transformation Artist and passionate Art Deco fan – and I’m excited to dive into why Art Deco is the ultimate interior trend for 2024…

A Journey Through History: The Origins of Art Deco

To truly appreciate the resurgence of Art Deco in 2024, we must first understand its rich history and cultural significance. Originating in the aftermath of World War I, Art Deco emerged as a response to the societal shifts and technological advancements of the early 20th century. It embraced modernity while drawing inspiration from a diverse range of sources, including ancient civilisations, exotic cultures, and the machine age. Out with the old, and in with the new – that was the motto of the day. Art Deco was the embodiment of modernity and progress. It wasn’t just a style; it was a whole aesthetic vibe that swept through everything from buildings to fashion. Everyone was keen to embrace the movement and reflect it in their lives – to leave behind the harshness of the war. Indulgence, decadence and pleasure were at the top of the upper classes’ agenda, with dinner parties and cocktail parties taking centre stage. Are cocktails one of the best inventions of that era? I think so! So much so that I name each of my art deco drinks cabinet designs after a signature cocktail – one that reflects the character and personality of the piece.

Rediscovering Art Deco's Allure in 2024

Characterised by geometric shapes, bold colours, and lavish ornamentation, Art Deco epitomises glamour, luxury, and sophistication. From the towering skyscrapers of New York City to the sleek ocean liners of the Art Deco era, this design movement has left an indelible mark on architecture, interior design, fashion, and the decorative arts. Fast forward to the present day, and the allure of Art Deco is stronger than ever. In an age characterised by rapid technological advancements and a longing for authenticity, Art Deco offers a welcome retreat into a world of elegance and refinement. Its timeless aesthetic transcends trends, resonating with a new generation of design enthusiasts who appreciate its blend of nostalgia and modernity. It is why I love it so much, and love to be able to craft art deco designs using those forgotten treasures and transform furniture that would otherwise be destined for landfill.

Versatility and Adaptability: The Key to Art Deco's Appeal

One of the most compelling aspects of Art Deco is its versatility. Whether you’re furnishing a chic urban flat, a 1930s semi-detached home or a period property, Art Deco furniture and accessories can effortlessly complement any space. A perfect example would be the iconic Art Deco drinks cabinet – a staple of the era’s social scene. Today, these glamorous cabinets are experiencing a resurgence in popularity, with modern interpretations featuring beautiful wood grains, sleek lines, luxurious materials, and innovative storage solutions. These are some of my favourite commissions to undertake – working with your overall vision and scheme for your room, we can create a true focal piece for your entertaining space.

Craftsmanship and Authenticity: Celebrating Art Deco Artistry

At the heart of Art Deco lies a celebration of craftsmanship and attention to detail. In the 2000s the era was dominated by mass production and disposable consumer culture – with those big box stores selling flat packs and disposable furniture and accessories that did anything but celebrate art and design. In 2024 there is now a growing appreciation for the artistry of skilled artisans. From hand-carved woodwork to intricate metalwork, Art Deco furniture embodies the meticulous craftsmanship of a bygone era, adding a touch of authenticity to any interior space.

Exclusivity and Luxury: Art Deco's Enduring Allure

Central to the appeal of Art Deco is its association with luxury and exclusivity. In a world where trends come and go, Art Deco stands apart as a symbol of refined elegance and sophistication. Art Deco furniture exudes an air of opulence that transcends time and trends – and none more so than this stunning Dynatron Walnut Retro Radiogram Cabinet. This is a new arrival at Liz Clarkson Interior Transformations and I can’t wait to bring it to life with a design commission – it has so much potential and the possibilities for its use are vast.
