Art Deco Style: The Other American Revolution
Spanning from 1925 to 1939, the art deco tradition permeated American culture. Art Deco style influenced the designs of
everything from fine art and architecture to fashion and advertising, essentially coming to define the American lifestyle.
Art Deco translated the abstract into the physical, capturing the essence of America's pulse, identity, and spirit. Through
its applications, the ordinary became the extraordinary, and everything was an example of artistic design.
One characteristic of the art deco design tradition is in the transcendence of the ordinary to a level of modern art. We apply
this concept to the Art Deco Molding Collection. Our art deco moldings are not your average molding. The moldings in this
collection are meant to serve a purpose: they are instrumental elements of design meant to elevate the look and feel of your
home. The moldings are also decorative; our art deco moldings are accents, gracefully offsetting other key design elements
showcased in your decor. The perfect combination of form and function, our art deco moldings preserve the values of the
tradition they are inspired from.
Each of our art deco moldings features a design consistent with the application of
Art Deco principles. Multifaceted and eclectic,
the Art Deco style blends with and complements a range of decors. Art Deco style is a style of contradictions, uniting the
traditional with the contemporary. In a celebration of extremes, the natural and synthetic, and the symmetrical and the abstract
redefine the concept of balance.

The Modern and Art Deco Molding Collection is the newest arrival, and although it might be somewhat difficult to appreciate
such enthusiasm for moldings, which aren't exactly the most enchanting aspects of design, but the excitement amongst the
designers is almost palpable.
One designer acknowledged, "It might sound insane to be excited over something like molding, but in our business, the moldings
featured in our new Modern Molding really get us all worked up." She goes on to explain, "We all share a love for the
Modern tradition, and the fact that we now offer Art Deco inspired moldings opens up a whole other world to our customers. We're really excited to introduce this new collection to our clients."
Art Deco is perhaps one of the most widely recognized forms of architecture amongst Americans. Art Deco is a style that connotes luxury, glamour, wealth, and a certain retro look that, oddly enough, still seems modern today. Upon inspection of the moldings featured in this molding collection, it is clear that the clean lines, bold geometry, and smooth streamlining of the style heavily influenced the design of these moldings.
