Starting Point: Art Deco / by Lynnea Schwieters

The 1920's and 30's brought a new sense of freedom and cheerfulness. Folks were happy to be out of war and woman became more independent and liberal. I think furniture design during this era really took on this role - Art Deco is fun, sexy, and has a great personality. Marquetry, softened corners, curves, interesting wood grains, and unique materials are typical amongst furniture of this era.
