We first noticed the rise of Art Deco design in 2017, when a crop of new stylish hotels and restaurants outfitted their spaces with bold geometric prints, velvet furniture, and luxurious detail work. Now, in 2019, it’s everywhere. Though seemingly high-end, it’s possible to find quality Art Deco decor at an accessible price point. Case in point: Walmart’s debut MoDRN line, which makes it easier than ever to incorporate a little Gatsby-esque glamour into your space. Moving past the subtle pale pinks and mid-century styles that defined the last few years, the new Art Deco aesthetic welcomes in deeper blush hues, curved silhouettes, and architectural motifs. So just in time for the roaring twenties centennial, (and the anniversary of the women’s right to vote!), we’re embracing a look that’s equal parts bold and femme.
Why not upgrade your morning coffee-at-the-counter routine? With this curvy barstool, everything from checking emails to end-of-day wine time becomes all the more luxurious. P.S. It comes in multiple colors and is even available as a dining chair.
Oh hey, pretty little light. A blend of Miami Art Deco and Scandinavian design, this orb is perfect for spotlighting your smaller spaces (think desk, nightstand, dresser). And despite its fashion-forward aesthetic, there’s nothing inaccessible about the price.
Nothing says rich and sumptuous like jewel tones. But you don’t have to go all in with an emerald sofa. This extra-plush wool rug brings just the right amount of decadent color—plus that ultimate hallmark of Art Deco design: geometry.
Set a table worthy of Greta Garbo with this assortment that recalls the slick materials found inside Art Deco structures. From the marble-inspired dinnerware to the sleek gold-embellishment pieces to chic hammered designs, your guests will never know it’s all dishwasher-and-microwave-safe.
Building off the zeitgeist for all things pink, the MoDRN line ups everyone’s favorite feminine color with lavish velvets, sparkly metallics, and of course, more of those eye-catching geometric patterns.
Retro glamour is best served with a side of cocktails, no? Use the decorative accents in this collection to take any soiree from fun to full-on fabulous. (And with the money saved you can splurge on champagne instead).
Though completely abstract, the strong lines of this ready-to-hang piece remind us of the classic lacquered designs found on Art Deco flooring, tiles, and marble walls. It’s an ideal artwork for a lover of contemporary who also appreciates vintage glamour.
For a low-commitment introduction to Art Deco style, opt for an accessory with a little symmetry and pattern. This scalloped throw pillow makes us think of crystal chandeliers and excess.
If you adore mid-century modern buffets, consider this chic alternative. Enhanced by gleaming, brass-plated hardware and legs, the clean-lined embellishments transform an everyday staple into an object of beauty.
The weighty, pointed handles on this stainless steel cutlery are pure Art Deco goodness. Pulling from Egyptian pyramids, Aztec temples, and ziggurats, it’s a style that screams of bold confidence and serious flair.
