Elaborately and precious exotic woods have been used in the creation of this Neo-Classical daybed. This piece of furniture, created by the French designer Marcel Coard (1889-1975), is the epitome of Art Deco in its purest form. In the 1920s, the luxurious style of French interior design conquered the houses of the Nuevo rich, which were striving to display for an elevated lifestyle. In contrast to the principles of Modernity, such as Bauhaus, the artists of Art Deco were neither interested in simplicity nor mass-production. Quite the contrary, as they aspired to create an exclusively unique hand-crafted piece while utilizing precious materials.
