Some people call it camp, others call it kitschy, but most call it cool. What is it? Retro decor! Whether you own an Art Deco theater, a ’50s diner or a British-themed “Mod Squad” pub, there’s sure to be a decorative ceiling tile that will fit right in with your homage to your favorite era.
Retro Decor: Still a Classic
Many designers and architects honor Art Deco as the last design style that was sensitive to human sensibilities and sensitivities before the big wave of all-business, cold, impersonal glass-and-steel towers hit. The movement to save Art Deco buildings with their delicate, sweeping curves and perfectly parallel angles still resonates with residents of reborn neighborhoods such as Miami’s South Beach and Southern California’s Hollywood. If you are lucky enough to own or lease space in one of these classic structures, you know that they need decorative ceiling tiles that honor that sensitivity, so give them retro decor! Tiles such as our 112 Deco Seashore, 209 Deco Corners, 201 Sunset Boulevard, 1205 Classic Checkered Deco, 1220 Classic Deco Diamonds, and 2403 Classic Art Deco Triangles would give the nod to that wonderful retro decor!
