Art Déco

A popular movement in the 1920s and 30s, promoted by Ruhlmann and other great Paris furniture manufacturers, and the big department stores. The style was influenced by Aztec and Egyptian design, the Ballets Russes, Hollywood musicals and the new ocean-going liners. It featured stepped and geometric designs, sunrays and chevrons.

Lalique, Rene

Rene Lalique (1860-1945), a leading French designer of Art Nouveau and Art Déco jewellery, and of glass from 1891. His pressed and frosted glass ceiling bowls and vases featured reliefs of natural motifs and sinuous female forms typical of the period.
