architectural art deco

inspiration

the doors of the oviatt building, a historic art deco architectural jewel in downtown los angeles, california, opened in 1928, revealing a lavish creation from ground floor to penthouse roof. it is furnished with lalique chandeliers, custom dark woodwork, french napoleon marble, a three-faced neon clock tower and an elaborate illuminated awning and outdoor arcade ceiling of sand-etched glass panels. nancy and rich exchanged vows on the ground floor of this historic high-rise in the cicada restaurant. converted to a 1920's-30's style dine and dance spot—maxwell demille's cicada club—on most sunday nights complete with big orchestra sound, vintage vocals and dancing till dawn, the cicada is a spectacular, two-story walnut lined room, crowned by a 30-foot gold-leafed ceiling with hanging chandelier. wrapped around its perimeter is an overlooking amber-lit mezzanine lounge that ends in a dramatic dual walnut staircase opposite the building's entrance. the class act couple threw a highly anticipated wedding party capitalizing on the oviatt's elegant art deco fixtures and elaborate architectural detailing.
