Central Hall, Tourist Office, Basque CountryFrom Ensembles mobiliers (1925) via NYPL
Room design for a Basque country tourist office from Ensembles mobiliers. I found this pretty interesting, with both the heavy furniture and at the same time, moving into the new style.

About the Book

Published in conjunction with the Exposition internationale des arts décoratifs et industriels modernes — the 1925 Paris exposition considered the blast-off point for Art Deco and later the origin of term — Ensembles mobiliers (translation: Furniture sets) is filled with the very latest, most stylish ideas in contemporary interior design. Here are laid out templates for a style that would take the world by storm, from dining rooms to Hollywood musical sets to public spaces.
