Additional Information

Style: Art Decò (1920-1950)

The name Art-Decò derives from the exhibition held in Paris in 1925, which was called the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative Arts and was the successor of the Liberty style.
Art-Decò is a stylistic historical period formed after the Liberty floral period, shortly after the end of the First World War.
There was an almost radical change anticipated by the growth of the Precisionist movement and that of Cubism (in art), the Art-Decò furnishings were characterized by decidedly more rigid lines and the presence of geometric figures, definitively abandoning the sinuous and moved lines , of objects and furnishings, of the previous Liberty period.
It was established from the dawn of 1915 until the early 30's.
This style was transversal and major exponents were created in the most diverse art forms, from urban architecture to painting, from sculpture to glass masters, from the production of objects as a complement to furnishings to jewelry.

Age: 20th Century - from 1901 to 2000

Main essence:


Walnut wood comes from the plant whose botanical name is juglans regia , probably originally from the East but very common in Europe. Light or dark brown in color, it is a hard wood with a beautiful grain, widely used in antique furniture. It was the main essence in Italy throughout the Renaissance and later had a good diffusion in Europe, especially in England, until the advent of mahogany. It was used for solid wood furniture and sometimes carvings and inlays, its only big limitation is that it suffers a lot from woodworm. In France it was widely used more than anything else in the provinces. In the second half of the eighteenth century its use decreased significantly because mahogany and other exotic woods were preferred.


Under the term Rosewood various exotic, hard and heavy woods have been united, characterized by a color that varies from pink to violet. Their origin is usually from Latin America, India and Africa and are still considered very valuable woods. Until the end of the eighteenth century, this name also referred to the bois de violette . In general, rosewood woods began to be imported into Europe starting in 1750 and were first used for veneers and inlays in England, flanked, by contrast, with lighter woods. Later, entire valuable furniture was manufactured both in England, mainly in the Regency style, and in France, starting from the Neoclassical period.
