The Timeless Charm of Art Deco Furniture
At Regent Antiques, we are proud to be able to offer our customers a carefully selected range of antique Art Deco furniture to bring a splash of elegance to their personal spaces.
Art Deco is one of the most distinctive styles thanks to its far-reaching influence across the arts and culture and across time. Characterized by its sharp-edged looks and stylized geometric patterns it is a decorative style that flourished between 1919 and 1939 throughout Europe and the United States.
It is, exactly, the characteristic shape and style of the Art Deco tradition that makes it so attractive. Smooth curves, unusual angles and iconic shapes all play their part in the Art Deco style and items of furniture made in this style are always in demand and sought after by collectors.

Last but not least, we would like to bring your attention to this interesting antique Art Deco figured walnut serving trolley. This is a striking antique Art Deco three-tier figured walnut hostess trolley dating from the 1920s.
The walnut woods are probably the most recognisable and popular of all the exotic woods, having been used in furniture making for many centuries. Walnut veneer was highly priced and the cost would reflect the ‘fanciness’ of the veneer – the more decorative, then the more expensive and desirable.
The trolley is of decorative circular form and is fitted with castors.
This is a very entertaining serving trolley which can also be used as a display unit. It is in excellent condition having been beautifully cleaned, polished and waxed in our workshops.
In addition to our fine range of carefully selected Art Deco furniture, we would like to draw your attention to a range of Art Deco decorative items.
