Dining in the Art Deco Era

Dining tables in the Art Deco style are characterized by their distinctive design elements that reflect the opulence, luxury, and modernity of the Art Deco period, which peaked in the 1920s and 1930s. Here are some key features and characteristics of Art Deco dining tables:

  1. Geometric Shapes:
    Art Deco dining tables often feature strong geometric shapes, such as rectangular, oval , or circular tabletops. These shapes are frequently combined with bold and angular lines in the table’s design.
  2. Luxurious Materials:
    Art Deco favored luxurious and exotic materials. Dining tables were crafted from high-quality materials like richly grained woods (such as walnut, rosewood, or ebony), marble, glass, and metals like chrome and brass. These materials added to the table’s elegance.
  3. Inlay and Veneer:
    Inlay work and veneer patterns were common in Art Deco tables. Intricate marquetry and contrasting wood grains, often in the form of sunbursts, chevrons, or zigzags, were used to create visually stunning tabletops.
  4. Streamlined Design:
  5. Art Deco emphasized sleek and streamlined design. Dining tables had clean lines, and the legs often featured stepped or tiered designs. This streamlined look reflected the machine age and modernity of the era.
  6. Symmetry and Balance:
  7. Art Deco dining tables were designed with a strong sense of symmetry and balance. The overall form and the placement of decorative elements were carefully considered to create harmony in the design.

Art Deco dining tables remain highly coveted by collectors and design enthusiasts, as they encapsulate the glamour and sophistication of the Roaring Twenties and the early 1930s. These tables are not only functional but also works of art that continue to inspire modern design.

Root Wood

Root wood is a highly prized and sought-after type of wood that comes from the Pterocarpus indicus tree. It is named after Islands in Indonesia, where the wood was initially discovered.

Root wood is renowned for its rich and distinctive appearance. It is highly valued for its striking grain patterns, which often feature swirling, burl-like figures and a range of colors, including reddish-brown, golden brown, and darker streaks. The wood has a natural luster and depth that enhances its aesthetic appeal.
