Art Deco is, essentially, timeless. But every once in a while, our collective fascination with the movement’s decor reaches a new fever pitch. With the release Friday of Baz Luhrmann’s blockbuster adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, suddenly, everyone wants an air of the Jazz Age.

Pillar of support: The Salute Table, by up-and-coming Munich-based designer Sebastian Herkner, is meant to act like a 1920s-era butler. When the handsome, painted steel column is placed near a lounger or arm chair, its elegant brass tray extends to hold your book, cocktail or iPad. For extra opulence, the cylinder also comes in a black marble and the tray in chrome.

McGill updated the Deco-esque fan pattern by cutting it into a modern drum-shaped base.
