Art Deco Tablescape

Simply put, Art Deco is a design form that was most popular during the 1920's and 1930's and influenced the design of buildings, furniture and household items just to mention a few. When Pat saw these accent plates on eBay (it took several months to get eight of them), she knew that they would be perfect for a tablescape - especially since Art Deco is her favorite design style.
Pat took the colors for the table from this plate - gray, black and gold

The flatware handles reminded Pat of the Art Deco style

Since it is not designed for food, the accent plate would be removed before the meal

The dinner plate is black "Fun Factory" by Waechtersbach

Once again, Pat used two chargers to add depth and color

It had to be a martini glass instead of a wine go with the design period

The candle holders and matching Depression glass bowl and liner are Mt. Pleasant Black (Black Amethyst) by L.E. Smith Glass Company

Pat couldn't help using this extra large vase as the centerpiece on this table again - it was the perfect style and color

  1. I'm glad you showed the close-ups, I was wondering about the plate with the dogs - lots of legs and I couldn't quite decide who/what they belonged to. But it's a lovely table, very Art Deco, and as usual, all the details are perfect.
