Curvy shapes give a room a subtle sensuality. Chairs with sloping arms, round cocktail tables, benches with cabriole legs—all add a slinky, sexy fluidity.
Tip: Keeping larger furniture in a muted palette gives harmony to the varying silhouettes and ensures that the effect is relaxing rather than busy.
A Glimmer of Glam
A touch of metallic gleam was a must-have for a fashionable 1920s room. The light reflecting off a gold-finish table or a mirrored console flatters not only the room itself but also the people in it.
Tip: For a more-is-more look, feel free to mix gold- and silver-trimmed pieces. If you prefer subtlety, stick to one metal.
The self-indulgence of the ‘20s translated to seating that was as comfortable to sink into as it was gorgeous to look at, like an amply filled, generously tufted leather or silk sofa with roll arms.
Tip: To avoid a fussy feel, add a few throw pillows in varying patterns or sizes. We like pairing tactile weaves with sleek upholstery.
