Art Deco was launched in the midst of the avant-garde art periods, originating in 1908 in sophisticated Paris, reaching its peak after WWI in 1925 at the Paris Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industrial Moderne.   Art Deco design brings the luxury and glamour of the roaring 20's to the 21st century; with its bold geometry and use of exotic woods and metals it is exquisite creating a contrast in a traditional setting or complimenting modern and contemporary interiors.
