Art Deco – or French modern, as the style was called in New York – was enthusiastically promoted by the city’s leading department stores. The style was known for its bold colors, strong lines, and overall modern appearance. This red-orange-lacquered suite features a color, sometimes known as “Chinese red,” that helped popularize this American variant of a French design in mixed woods by Léon Jallot.
