French Art Deco: The New Mid-Century Modern

Okay, so unless you don't shop online whatsoever, you have probably noticed that popular brands like CB2, West Elm and Anthropology have been showcasing new lines that are largely in the French Deco Style. Now, while this is definitely the new frontier, rest assured that Mid-Century is not going anywhere so fast. Deco and Mid-Century actually blend beautifully together; the opulence and cold hard stone of the Deco style are warmed up instantly by incorporating Mid-Century wood and rounded shapes.

So, are you ready to re-design your room a la French Deco?

Enter, Lulu and Georgia. They are among many that are creating 1920's inspired decor reimagined and modernized for today. Our inspiration photo for today is a dining room from said collection.

Check out their entire collection here if you're interested, but if you're like me and want to emulate this decadent and trendy style without purchasing $500 dining chairs and $3,000 rugs... Keep reading.

Here's our take on this room, reimagined with more affordable dupes. This entire room can cost you as little as $536 or at most $887. The reason for this is because you will notice we selected a few options for smalls in this mood board, proving once again that you can always find something within your budget.

For example, the Bubblegum 6 Canvas by Mineheart (which is fabulous is it not?) will cost you $152. Whereas the Society6 Opulence Art Print by keightmaclean is only $25! The same goes for our other selects for sculpture and table decor. See all our curated dupes below!
