Nothing screams ‘Happy New Year’s!” in the faces of our friends, loved ones, and dreaded tag-alongs like the gilded glam of the roaring twenties. Go completely art-deco this year. Really lean into the gold, black and jewel tones. Art deco is chic, bold, timeless. Think Great Gatsby without meddling Myrtle or a swimming pool. Practice introducing art deco into your space this new year with a statement cabinet and complimentary accents with tips from designer Jennifer Koff.
Rattan isn’t just reserved for boho or modern organic styles. Known for its sustainability, rattan was also a popular detail in the 1920s. Repetition of exaggerated shapes like ovals gives art-deco a subtle charm.
Velvet is where your jewel tones come in. Art deco celebrates curvatures. Add plush seating to invite your guests to sit and gossip about how jealous they are of your new space. Add accent pillows with complimentary patterns and colors to complete the look with the Noel Dark Blue Velvet Accent Chair.
Don’t forget about the bar!: A rolling bar cart? How convenient! Park this bar cart against a wall to create a central hub for your guests to fix themselves a drink or be the mobile barkeep of the evening. Add coupe glasses, an ice bucket, mixed nuts, and a fresh popped bottle of Veuve with the Lorraine Round Gold Bar Cart. Cheers!
