Art Deco Design
Art Deco is a design movement that began in the mid 1920s and lasted until the 1940s. Originating in Paris, this style influenced architecture, interiors design, and fashion. Here’s a look at a few of our deco designs including Deco Buttons!
Art Deco design was intended to represent scientific progress, the rise of commerce, technology, and speed. The designs, especially for architecture, drew inspirations from the Babylon, Ancient Egypt, Aztecs of Mexico, and Native Americans. The designs typically are represented with simple, clean, geometric shapes.
Trapizoidal, zigzagged, and triangular shapes are often used throughout these designs. The chevron design, perhaps the most iconic, and sunburst motifs are also commonly used.
Our Rice Paddy design is a great representative of the chevron design. For this design we weave it as a flatweave to create more texture and depth.
Our aptly named Sunburst carpet uses clean lines and neutral colors to achieve it’s design.
Quilted Hues is a beautiful representation of different triangles and colors being used to express movement.
Stylized flowers are also common in Art Deco designs. Bold geometric shapes and sweeping curves used here in our Tulips design.
