I have found an amazing catalogue from a French company, made in 1925 - a high time of Art Deco. As our trusty friend Wikipedia describes it: "It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colours, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation"... and let me show you what it looks like - so you may get some inspiration from the era.
For me, this was a dream come true. It's an amazingly inspiring and every single item is true to it's form (not a "modern twist" or "inspired by"). I'm pulling a lot of ideas from here.
