(NAPSI)—The opulence of Art Deco and period-inspired home furnishings are trending more than ever.

Whether it’s the influence of popular TV shows and movies, such as “The Great Gatsby,” or just a longing for the elegant and beautiful, the newest look in many American homes is one that hearkens back to the 1920s.

Filmmaker Baz Luhrmann’s take on the classic novel includes an unparalleled enthusiasm for capturing the striking period style and visual decadence of the Roaring ‘20s. From Art Deco to European Deco to Hollywood Regency, the film evokes a sense of luxury in every scene.

“We’re seeing a resurgence of interest in the Art Deco trend and period styling,” says Jackie Hirschhaut, vice president of the American Home Furnishings Alliance. “Movies like ‘The Great Gatsby’ highlight the beauty of these timeless styles and create demand for unique looks. Manufacturers have responded with a variety of options in case goods, upholstery, accessories and accents-which means moviegoers can bring a little bit of ‘Gatsby’ flair to their own homes.”

The Art Deco style is characterized by bold, geometric and linear shapes with nods to industrialism. It’s a look whose forms are at once streamlined and architectural, yet heavily influenced by glamorous fashion, sensuous lines and rich materials.

Fortunately, you don’t need a Hamptons mansion or a bootlegger’s budget to indulge this desire.

Luhrmann’s lavish set designs were based on the great early-20th-century houses of Long Island’s North Shore. Even though Art Deco design was the epitome of luxury, it can be seen at retail today in a range of home furnishings offered at all price points.

That means it can be easy to give yourself the green light when it comes to bringing the authentic feel of the film and the era into your home. Start small with just one piece or go all-in with a room completely inspired by the look.
