Art Deco Styling in Contemporary Mixed Materials
The Serena Art Deco desk evolved out of early century fine art movements like Cubism, Constructivism and Futurism. These all reached for something new but sometimes had political overtones and never got much beyond small audiences of artists and intellectuals.
In contrast, Art Deco was thrillingly popular. It had symmetry and enough simplicity to remind audiences of the similarities to beloved Neoclassical styles. The secret to popularity was to be both familiar and new. Here was a truly international style of design that practically vibrated with optimism and confidence.
Art-Deco and Mid-Century Mash-Up
The Serena desk mixes the sophistication of International Art Deco with the energy of early mid-century American design. It has a confident compression-release stance, multiple volumes, stepped surfaces and seven useful storage drawers. Description:
- Seven Drawers
- Finished Back and Sides
- Full Extension Glides
- Stained Interior
- Bronzed Pulls
General Information on Cleaning and Care
Dust and dirt are the enemy of clear, like-new, finishes. The best way to keep your purchase looking its best is to clean it frequently with a dry cloth. Beyond this general advice, follow these basics for years of beautiful use:
- Keep purchases dust-free. Blot stains and liquids. When you need deeper cleaning, use a lightly damp cloth.
- Keep your purchase in a stable temperature and away from direct sun.
- Do not use any caustic chemicals or abrasives. Stay away from harsh cleaners like alcohol, acetone or ammonia. Only use glass cleaner on glass.
