Art Deco Chairs and Sofas in luxury hotels and famous places to visit
Chair and sofa design
Chairs and sofas often have a mixture of design of characteristics that make them particularly suited to an Art Deco scheme. Long linear lines mixed with gentle sloping curves are classic details to look out for. The use of walnut, oak, maple, rosewood and similar looking woods often feature in the arms, frames and legs. Polished brass or chrome detailing is another design cue, especially when it forms linear patterns that are typical of they style.
In fact most of the design features you'd associated with Art Deco can be found including sun-burst and shell styled upholstery, chevrons, animal skin designs and so on. We recommend sticking to plain or subtle designs for your chair and sofa upholster, for example the the chairs and sofas pictured in the lobby of the Beaumont Hotel above. The combination of the heavily patterned upholstery and rugs can be a bit problematic to our eyes.
Different chair and sofa styles
A selection of our favourite modern chair designs that will work with a modern Art Deco scheme. You may have noticed the last chair has quite a mid-century design. Despite being a different design style, we've found mid-century furniture often works pretty well in Art Deco oriented room designs, after all there are no hard and fast rules here.
