1920-1935
Art Deco style was prompted by the Paris Exhibition of 1925 and thrived during the 1920s and 1930s. The main influences on Art Deco design were Cubism and Ancient Egypt, following the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb in 1922.
Art Deco left an indelible mark on London as designers, architects, artists and engineers succumbed to the new style. Art Deco buildings dotted around London today are distinguished by their opulence and clean geometry. With developments in manufacture designers had new freedom to celebrate the mechanised world.  The sumptuous contours, contrasting lines and unconventional materials of Florin Court in Farringdon are synonymous with Art Deco Architecture.  The interior of Eltham Place, the ruined childhood home of Henry VIII, bought and rebuilt by Stephen and Virginia Courthauld in 1933 captures an opulent escapist era.
Art Deco caught on and soon shaped the skylines of cities around the world. Affordable materials benefitted from sophisticated production techniques and designers delighted in the unexpected. Sharp lines contrasted with undulating curves and garish colours clashed to create a bold new aesthetic.
Art Deco liberated the imagination and celebrated the dreams and desires of an International audience. It was sophisticated, cool and cosmopolitan.
Designers made references to the visual innovations of the Cubists, the lustrous colours and glamour of Diaghalev and  the Ballets Russes, historic European styles and the dawn of the machine age. Further afield the shape and materials used in the arts of Africa and East Asia provided inspiration. Archaelogical digs unearthed Egyptian treasure which fascinated Art Deco Designers who incorporated geometric lines and clashing colours into their work. Art Deco was a celebration of the exotic.
Jewellers began cutting multicoloured stones into triangles, pentagons and oblongs to make geometric patterns after the Cubist movement and the rise of abstraction.
Society beauties wore long strings of pearls over low cut dresses and stacked panelled diamond set platinum bracelets up their arms.
Bold contrasts between white diamonds and coloured stones are characteristic of the era. The Art Deco palette is both vibrant and distinctive.
Burgeoning travel had an impact on Art Deco jewellery which included carved Asian jade, coral and rubies as well as sapphires and emeralds imported from India.
