Have you dreamt of being transported back in time to an era where gin was flowing in smoked filled rooms, with great jazz bands pouring into your soul. Especially when dancing in moonlight and slipping champagne was forbidden! Join me in the Jazz Era!
The Home Show opened on April 1, 2014 with over 50+ interior designers and builders creating new and exclusive releases for the month-long event. This year the event will have entertainment including weekly movie nights featuring all the Harry Potter movies and musical guests.

One of the exclusive designs showcased at The Home Show is the Gatsby Set by PRIME. Reven Rosca, creator of PRIME was influenced by the Roaring 20’s in her Art Deco inspired lounge and bedroom set. Ms. Rosca used a bold graphic geometric pattern in the teal and black duvet cover on the brass bed (with 420+ animations). She complemented the room with bright fuchsia, teal and black curvilinear Art Deco inspired piped armchairs, reminiscent of the French Art Deco club chairs with their wide arms and deep cozy seat. Reven Rosca created 6 different patterned lounge chairs mixing and matching, blending prints, patterns, and colors. This is a nod to the Roaring 20s Jazz Movement and characteristic of Art Deco style from the 1920’s though the 1950’s.
a style of decorative art developed originally in the 1920s with a revival in the 1960s, marked chiefly by geometric motifs, curvilinear forms, sharply defined outlines, often bold colors, and the use of synthetic materials, as plastics
To transform the space to the Jazz Era, I furnished the room with PRIME Simply White Fireplace with bench (past release at The Collage, now available @ PRIME main store), LTD Group Gift Cushion Pillows, Floorplan Nostalgic Chandelier (gold) and Apple Falls Nouveau Screen/Fan Palms/Porthole Mirror’s (new release @ The Garden). Utilizing Art Deco posters from the era helps to set the tone of the space, and appointments such as the Second Spaces Poker game, LTD Digital Gramophone, Mustard Seed Decorative Dog, and Champagne on Ice completes the space.

Art Deco (/ˌɑrt ˈdɛkoʊ/), or Deco, is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France after World War I, flourishing internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s before its popularity waned after World War II. It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craftmotifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes, and lavish ornamentation.
Deco emerged from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organicmotifs favored by its predecessor Art Nouveau.
Historian Bevis Hillier defined Art Deco as “an assertively modern style [that] ran to symmetry rather than asymmetry, and to the rectilinear rather than the curvilinear; it responded to the demands of the machine and of new material [and] the requirements of mass production”.
During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
