Art deco is an artistic style, which transcends all time, since symmetry and geometric patterns are eternal. That is the reason art deco admirably lends itself to any kind of architectural or interior style, be it rustic, traditional or modern. However, art deco design features and elements have a tendency to take on flamboyant forms, which may not suit your idea of sophistication.
You could begin with the dining table. Think in terms of a round or a hexagonal table and chairs with an angular design. Let the unit stand as a culinary island in the centre of the dining room. You may consider wallpapers with geometric or linear designs. Leave a foot of space at the floor and ceiling. Attach a trim at both ends of the wallpaper and install wood panelling.
Most dining rooms sport a wide mirror on one wall. Combining them with an art deco chandelier can create a stunning atmosphere of aesthetics and light. However, we can tweak this creatively. Install the mirror on the ceiling directly above the table. Select a lamp that will light the room and also serve as the centrepiece of the dining table. Now you do not need a chandelier as the mirror above will flood the room with reflected light.
If your dining area happens to be in the kitchen, the entire space will need complementary art deco design features. However, since most kitchens are dominated by long counters and tall cupboards, with gleaming appliances, most of your designing is already done. Here, you may not need a mirror, so grace your walls with some art or some photo frames. You can further enliven the ambience with tallish plant containers on the floor.
