Art Deco design originated in Paris and, understandably has a cult following in both the antiques and design world. An elegant and glamourous form known for its "sexy" statement style, Art Deco pieces were crafted for a relatively short time in the 1920's and 1930's. It is easy to see why those lucky enough to have an original period piece are very proud to display this rare part of design history.
The DeCoene brothers , the premier furniture company from Belgium, are responsible for this spectacular statement piece, above I brought back from Belgium.
This original Art Deco piece is in spectacular condition. With its mirrored back, burlwood and thick onyx top, the DeCoene brothers created this masterpiece. Its form stands the test of time and is a beautiful way to incorporate an important antique into your decor for those of you loving the clean look of modern rooms and wanting to take the advice of top level designers advising you to add a good antique to each room for importance, warmth and timelessness. The Art Deco form marries seamlessly with modern design.
Known for their fine craftsmanship and subtle details DeCoene accepted assignments from all over the world and successfully implemented total interiors that even today, 100 years later, are current and functional.
