Originating in France just before World War One, Art Deco design is famous throughout the globe as one of the first truly international design styles.
As ideas and concepts travelled further and further due to newly available technology, Art Deco was at the forefront of an architectural revolution. Drawing inspiration from a plethora of different sources, from pre modern art, to modernist cubist designs; Art Deco was distinctive and new.
The vibrant, often clashing, colours and geometric designs which were Art Deco’s trademark often featured on many iconic buildings. These include the Chrysler Building in New York and the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris. Such iconic and timeless buildings are rare to see and become available on the property market even less frequently.
This luxurious and glamorous architecture eventually fell out of fashion in the 1930s, being replaced with other more functional, less opulent design styles. However, the buildings which remain stand as testament to an iconic and optimistic era. They evoke memories of the Jazz age, the Charleston dance, and speakeasies in the United States which are all still much loved today.
At Robert Irving Burns, we have many iconic buildings available for you to call home. Just get in touch today to view a flat in this fantastic piece of architecture and you too can live in a little slice of history!
