Art Deco

Art Deco grew out of a movement in France to re-establish the country as a top-producer of arts. This movement took place in between the two World Wars and played an important role in shaping the West’s modern art vision. This movement happened particularly in France and the United States in the cities of New York, Chicago and San Francisco.

Rationalized designs and the glamorous style of Art Deco (style moderne) emphasized progress, power, and speed, which contrasted to its predecessor, Art Nouveau, so called fin-de-siècle style. While Art Nouveau took inspiration from the natural world and organic shapes, Art Deco emphasized clean lines and geometric patterns, luxurious colors and materials, as well as embraced man made and machine-driven glory. The art expanded beyond painting and sculpture into architecture, glasswork, furniture, and jewellery.

Modern cities created skyscrapers. This modern invention emphasized clean lines, fundamentality, and overwhelmed scale and scope. The Art Deco designs were mostly applied to public buildings, theatres, cinemas, banks, as well as skyscrapers, which absolutely embodied the style. One of its brightest examples is the New York’s Empire State Building.

Photography was the new trend in the 1920s, and movie actors became public idols. Cinemas were called “palaces” with elegantly decorated interiors, bright neon lights and huge cinema halls.

The Art Deco styled movie set of THE GREAT GATSBY (2013), starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is a bright example of opulent and alluring Art Deco’s heydays.

2020 marks one century since the heyday of Art Deco in the 1920s. Its aesthetic beauty and its link with luxury, opulence and glamour have guaranteed everlasting Art Deco-Mania today. The Art Deco style remains popular as a key reference for designers, artists, and photographers.


Renewed interest in Art Deco has recently prompted this project. We are passionate in French Art Deco Glass and use this source to create our unique collections.

Light Collection

We supply lights that combine Art Deco glass with Philips smart bulbs and a ReArtDeco Mounting Plate. This combination allows the lights to be mounted to the ceiling, wall, or on a tripod. In addition, we offer chandeliers that also use the same bulbs.

Vase, Bowl, and Toiletry Collections

In addition, we offer vases, bowls, and toiletry from the Art Deco era.

Poster Collection and hand painted Glass

In addition to Art Deco glass, we have Art Deco styled posters that are hand painted by our artist who also decorates some of our glass objects

From Chandeliers to Lamps

ReArtDeco lamps started off life as chandeliers that were created in France during the 1920s-1930s Art Deco period. During this period chandeliers were suspended from high ceilings where the glassware could be admired from beneath the object.

Todays modern houses have relatively low ceilings that makes it difficult to admire these chandeliers as they were originally intended.

ReArtDeco has transformed these chandeliers with backing plate so that the original chandeliers can be mounted as low-profile lamps to celiing, walls, or tripods. This allows the lamps to be placed in any room in the house, including bathrooms and kitchens.

The next step in the transformation was to modernize the lighting and instead of using traditional bulbs ReArtDeco lamps use 3 Philips Hue White and Color Ambiance LED smart bulbs per lamp.

  • LED’s use much less energy than incandescent bulbs.
  • Each bulbs color and brightness are separately controlled, to be able to setup the desired ambiance.
  • Controlling the lights is done from switches, phone apps or even by voice.
