How to Get the Art Deco Look with Lighting | Amos Lighting + Home



With sleek lines and elegant finishes, art déco is a style which stands the test of time. Originating in Paris in the 1920s the art déco style is renowned for its sharp and elegant aesthetic. Spanning architecture, design, fashion, interiors and more, the period style has proven to be timeless within the home. Over 100 years later, the design style is still a firm favourite amongst interior design tastemakers and homeowners alike.

With a focus on symmetry and metallic colours, the art déco look can be effortlessly introduced into most interior design schemes. To introduce the coveted style to your interior, lighting is the perfect place to start.

Luminous Lamps

Dip your toe in art déco’s expansive waters with a sleek lamp. Decorating your living space with a lamp is an easy way to bring a touch of the twenties into the room, giving a nod to the style without overpowering the space. Options like the Laura Ashley Marlowe Polished Nickel Swing Arm Floor Lamp fit beautifully within the living room. The aforementioned piece features an elegant stepped base – a signature feature of the déco movement, and for the perfect accompaniment, the Laura Ashley Sorrento table lamp also features a stepped base and has a refined look, making it a charming addition to any room scheme.

Stylish Sconces

A popular way to decorate with art déco lighting is through sconces. Sconces were a design staple during the stylish period, and are enjoying a resurgence in homes today. Echoing the sleek symmetrical lines, the Astro Mashiko 360 Classic Wall Light is framed with bronze and finished with opal glass panels paying homage to the déco style, whilst lending itself to a classic or contemporary scheme.

For something with more decorative flair, the Laura Ashley Prague Bathroom Wall Light has fabulous detailing and is perfectly suited to sitting either side of a bathroom mirror. This piece features a brass base and a textured glass finish.

Statement Pendants

As well as sleek lines and industrial materials, the 20s were a time of design opulence, as reflected in the rich jewel tones and desirable materials such as gold and crystal. Emulate decadence with a statement piece like the Laura Ashley Windsor or the Laura Ashley Fernhurst. Both dripping with crystal, the light from these pendants will sparkle within the room to create a magical atmosphere.

Lighting is a great way to subtly emulate the glamour of 1920s Paris. With a variety of options available, there is an art déco style fixture to suit any home. If you’re considering trying this timeless style, Amos Lighting has a wide selection to spark your inspiration.
