Life Imitates Art With The Return Of Art Deco
Recently, the movie re-boot of the classic F. Scott Fitzgerald book, The Great Gatsby opened in theaters. Leading up to its much anticipated release, designers and shelter magazines have been buzzing about the Jazz Age and the fashion of the times. Defined as the time period between post World War I and the stock market crash of 1929, the Jazz Age was signified by an increase in prosperity, and hedonistic social behavior, due in large part to Prohibition. The Jazz Age ushered in the beginning of the Modernist movement, and the birth of Art Deco. Naturally, the movie set features these design themes and leaves everyone wanting a touch of it for their own homes.
