LUXURY. ART. DESIGN.


Art Deco

Art Deco is an opulent and alluring visual arts design style that unfolded in the 1920s in France. It burgeoned internationally in the early 1940s. This style still has a boundless influence on everything from architecture to sculpture, interiors to jewelry, furniture to car design. It is no doubt that Art Deco is a conspiracy between many styles and movements to please every connoisseur out there.
