Elegant chandelier in red wrought iron composed of eight sconces supporting candles. This Art Deco basket chandelier, with its refined silhouette, revisits classic shapes in a contemporary style of its time. The neoclassical ornamental patterns made up of scrolls, arrows and rivers of red iron pearls overhang a stylized cluster.

The 1920-1940 Art Deco style is the first style that is movement of a truly global and simultaneous nature. It is also the first one to fully combine architecture and decoration. It takes its name from the International Exhibition of Modern Decorative and Industrial Arts which was held in Paris in 1925. Inspired by Cubism, Fauvism and African and Egyptian art, Art Deco can be defined in three words: order, color and geometry. Art Deco furniture and lightings benefit from a prestigious production for wealthy clients, from the Chrysler Building to the Palace of the Maharajah of Indore, the Stoclet Palace, the Champs Elysées theater or the large transatlantic liners of the time. The greatest artists in terms of Lighting are Jacques-Emile Ruhlman, Jules Leleu, Jean-Michel Frank, Jean-Charles Moreux, and many others.
Lustre élégant en fer forgé rouge composé de huit bras de lumière supportant des bougies. Ce lustre corbeille d’époque Art Déco, à la silhouette épurée, revisite des formes classiques dans un style contemporain de son époque. Les motifs ornementaux néo-classiques constitués de volutes, de flèches et de rivières de perles en fer rouge surplombent une grappe stylisée.

Le style Art Déco 1920-1940 est le premier mouvement qui allie pleinement l’architecture et la décoration à être de nature vraiment mondiale et simultanée. Il tient son nom de l'Exposition internationale des Arts décoratifs et industriels modernes qui se tint à Paris en 1925. Inspiré par le cubisme, le fauvisme et l’art africain et égyptien, l’Art Déco peut se définir en trois mots: ordre, couleur et géométrie. Le mobilier et les luminaires Art Déco bénéficient d'une production de prestige pour des clients aisés, du Chrysler Building au Palais du Maharajah d’Indore, en passant par le palais Stoclet ou le théâtre des Champs Elysées ou les grands paquebots transatlantiques de l’époque. Les plus grands artistes en terme de Luminaires sont Jacques-Emile Ruhlman, Jules Leleu, Jean-Michel Frank, Jean-Charles Moreux, et bien d’autres.
