What is art deco style, you ask? Think: _The Great Gatsby_, the Roaring Twenties, the Empire State Building. It's all about sumptuous luxury — luscious curved furniture; rich velvets; shiny brass and chrome details; elaborate abstract textures; geometric patterns. The aesthetic came into existence during a time of American optimism, which could be why the style is still alluring today. While you might not be going all Daisy Buchanan on your living room, a little art deco-inspired piece here and there can make your home feel extra-luxe.
