This book contains an excellent array of photos of original and recreated art deco interiors covering many styles within the period. From grand public spaces to intimate domestic interiors it is an inspirational book for someone who may be interested in recreating the Art Deco look.

I bought this as a complete newcomer to the subject area and have found it a good read. Each section is covered in detailed text followed by plenty of drawings, photographs and prints.

My only criticism is that it is a bit heavy on just listing names of designers without giving any background of them, their styles or what they contributed to the genre. Feels a bit like you might be reading a 1930's 'Hello' magazine than an informed book.

Pretty enough as a starting point though.

Being an Art Deco lover for a lot of years (guess what, I'm a wrinkly) I found this publication fascinating
and am still ploughing throuh it in easy stages, enjoying every minute. Not everyones's taste of course but
it gives the impression of quality which many of today's products don't. Sorry if this makes me sound like a
grumpy old man - I am. Only problem: it weighs about half a ton and is a bugger to read in bed...

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was looking for a book that would explain the art deco style and key features for a Uk house. The book covers art deco all over the world and is full of name drops of designers and houses/commercial buildings, making it difficult to read and rather meaningless, except of course for the expert in the field. It reads as a book of designers, describing the buildings they designed and how they were influenced to design like this. It covers the history or art deco, commercial buildings, 1970'80's revival, great exhibitions, French Interiors, but only has a few pages specifically looking at UK domestic interiors. It becomes very difficult to find any basic straightforward explanations of deco style in the Uk and hasn't really been the right book for my needs. Disappointing.

I bought this for a friends birthday. She lives in a 1930's home and she want to decorate her living room in the style of the 1920's. It is an incredible book and I hope she loves it. There are so many amazing pictures but there is also allot of words that talk about Art Deco in the 1920's and in the 1930's. This book is amazing. If you want to know about Art Deco from the 1920's and the 1930's then you will love this book especially with the illustrations.

A very interesting book with hundreds of drawings, photographs and prints.
I expected more details on decorative arts which were an important part of interior design during art deco era.

Bought this good book following a visit to the excellent Eltham Palace (do go see). It is kind of what you might call a coffee table book rather than one you would read on the train to work. Nice photos and will appeal to many.
