Art Deco Sectional
Art Deco furniture draws both designers and consumers who appreciate the functionality and elegance of this distinctive decorative style. The style was introduced in 1925, at the International Exhibition of Modern and Industrial Decorative Arts in France, but was not referred to as “Art Deco” until decades later, during one of the style’s many revival periods.
Art Deco design was influenced by a global interest in a futuristic utopia, in part as a reaction to World War I, the “war to end all wars.” Architects, artists and designers envisioned a world at peace, ordered and elegant, a world informed by both science and the arts. The Art Deco style is typically sleek and spare, but not void of decoration. Motifs can be purely geometrical, or can depict aspects of nature with geometrical lines. Sunbursts, portrayed in precise symmetry, are a popular Art Deco motif.
From its inception, Art Deco design has utilized a variety of materials, embracing both natural materials like fine woods, leather, jade and chrome, as well as synthetic materials like bakelite. The Art Deco style uses materials as an element of design, not merely for their functionality. Art Deco furniture emphasizes luxury and elegance, achieved with minimalist style.
Combining the Art Deco style with sectional furniture is a perfect marriage of the style’s two main components: functionality and sophistication. Art Deco sectionals may feature the sleek, streamlined look of furniture designed with attention to balance and symmetry, may feature the luxury materials associated with the style, or may feature the decorative motifs that are popular in Art Deco, including geometrical designs and futuristic symbols.
The Art Deco style was also informed by an global interest in archeological discovery during the early part of the 20th century, particularly the opening of Tutankhamen’s tomb in 1922. Egyptian motifs and hieroglyphics influenced the style. Patterns used in Art Deco sectional furniture may reflect these sensibilities, with bordered prints and earth-toned or muted colors.
Sectional furniture as a whole fits in well with the Art Deco philosophy of providing furnishings that reflect a vision of a future that combines beauty and functionality. Sectional sofas can be arranged in a wide variety of configurations. Their versatility makes them a useful and beautiful addition to any room. Art Deco’s attention to craft and detail, as well as to spatially balanced design, makes the style a perfect partner for sectional furniture.
