"Art deco is full of glam and luxury, as it brings rich, bold colors and modern designs into the world of art, from architecture to furniture," Noel Fahden, vice president of merchandising at Chairish, tells Hunker. "Seamlessly blending the line between old and new world designs, it's an eclectically beautiful style that has become one of the most popular aesthetics to date."

What to Look for in an Art Deco Chair

According to Fahden, art deco is all about a symmetrical and streamlined look. "When shopping for seating, keep your eyes peeled for simple and clean shapes with geometric representations of things like flowers, animals, and sun rays, which are very angular and sharp designs," Fahden says.

Additionally, Fahden recommends looking for bold accents — like glossy black, red, and gold — and furniture that uses rich materials "to further accentuate the glamorous atmosphere" of your art-deco-inspired space.
