Art Deco : more than a style

7 June 2021

The Art Deco style took off at the end of the First World War and reached its peak in the 1930s. It was the first movement in architecture and decoration of a global nature. Art Deco consists of a return to more classic and symmetrical lines, contrasting with the organic forms of Art Nouveau at the end of the 19th century.
The French Riviera, land of villas each more extraordinary than the other, was one of the cradles of Art Deco. Take for example this superb 1930s villa located in Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat which has been completely renovated by the French architect Valérie Chomarat.
Trained in the English minimalist school, she has strived to eliminate the superfluous by enhancing the essentials of the property. The beautiful white marble used created the spirit of the project.
The owners of the villa, an art loving couple, acquired a sculpture by Igor Mitoraj when they bought the villa. The interior decoration was oriented around this work, arranged in the entrance facing the bluish horizon of the Mediterranean.
This villa is offered for seasonal rental by Valmont Riviera. Download
