2019 Design Trends: The Return of Art Deco

Petite Friture

Design house and editor Petite Friture has always been known for its curated collection of furnishings. Though the brand showcases many different types of design, there are several products in its portfolio that have been influenced by the Art Deco style – especially when it comes to lighting. For example, the gold Mediterrana designed by Noe Duchaufour-Lawrence has notable Art Deco influences; it uses the style’s signature geometric patterns and a sophisticated brushed brass finished.

The Spectator

A delightful boutique hotel situated in the historic district of Charleston, USA, The Spectator Hotel combines Jazz Age charisma with southern American charm. The Art Deco influences can be seen most clearly within The Spectator’s signature Bar: warm gold touches contrast with the space's dark wallpapers and richly coloured furnishings. From its interiors to its cocktail menu, the Bar has a 1920s speakeasy feeling, drawing from the Prohibition-era style to create a unique environment.

The Red Room

Originally built and designed in 1929, New York’s One Wall Street has recently been repurposed by Macklowe Properties. Though the interior will now hold upscale residential and retail spaces, the developer has ensured that One Wall Street’s limescale façade and famed ‘Red Room’ will be restored to their original Art Deco glory. The Red Room especially will keeps its architectural integrity; the 5000-square-foot Art Deco space features a triple height floor-to-ceiling mural created by Hildreth Miere, who is said to have introduced America to the modernism of Art Deco through her artworks.

Hotel Gotham

Housed in one of Manchester’s grandest buildings, Hotel Gotham is one of the city’s most prominent five-star boutique hotels. Hotel Gotham stands out not just because of its service and guest rooms, either: the building is one of the most unusual and unique properties in Manchester. Previously, it was a bank premises and was designed by Edwin Lutyens in 1928. True to the Art Deco style of the time, Hotel Gotham awes guests with its grand, castle-like façade, as well as its Manhattan-inspired vintage interiors - it's no wonder the hotel has been dubbed the 'King of King Street'.
