The 1920’s were a time of prosperity and freedom. As America’s economy flourished and technology developed to bring exciting new inventions -such as fridges, radios, and vacuums- the new generation began to distance themselves from the tight conforms of eras passed. Loose dresses were worn instead of the tight S-shaped gowns of the Edwardian era and corsets became unnecessary. This opened doors for women, giving them comfort and, in a sense, independence.
Places of residence changed greatly as well.
The homes of older generations had been gaudy, highly ornamented, and intricate.
However, the roaring twenties brought along a much more minimal and modern take on interior design known as ‘Art Deco’.
Lines became straighter, colors became darker, and metallic ornamentation made its comeback.
Not to mention the intricate floral patterns of years passed were replaced with geometric and palm-frond graphics.
Art Deco can be modernized to today’s standards and be used in homes to create a nostalgic classiness.
However, finding quality pieces of Art Deco furniture can sometimes be difficult if you do not know what you’re looking for.
