About Us

Dan Oliver began collecting fine Art Deco years before he offered objects to the private sector. Ten years before he created Streamline Modern and to share his passion for 1930’s design, Dan Oliver considered himself a modern day Ruhlmann and to share his passion for Art Deco design, luxurious materials, and the quality craftsmanship epitomized by the best American and French Deco styles that captivated the first half of the 20th century.

In 1998, while simultaneously selling museum-quality pieces by famous artisans of the era. Streamline Modern was conceived, simultaneously launching his own interior design service and the Streamline Modern Collection of fully customizable, high-end fine Deco furniture, lighting, sculptures, relief panels, lighted wall partitions, fabric, murals and more.

Dan Oliver and Streamline Modern seeks only the most unique and one-of-a-kind quality pieces hand-crafted from the finest materials and craftsmanship. Dan continues to split his time between museum quality restorations, while offering custom objects that are often one of a kind of very limited of the best objects from the period. I have been collecting for over 30 years: without my exclusive sources around the world I believe, this would be impossible today.”

The Streamline Modern collection includes pieces by famous artisans and builders like Donald Deskey, Kem Weber, Gilbert Rohde, Jacques Emile Ruhlmann, Jean Dunand and others, This perfect manipulation between form and function provides objects far beyond design and function alone.

Streamline Modern Collection 

Dan Oliver launched his own Collection line in 1998 and has expanded it ever since. Our motto is “Where Imagination Becomes Reality”  Inspired by the objects that he has collected throughout his life – and especially those of American and French masters his aim was to create high-end and fully customizable Art Deco furniture as well as perfect models of very rare objects. The dimensions, woods, veneers, details and designs are all tailored to the tastes of the individual client. They can be as simple or complex  such as servo-motors employed to cleverly conceal unsightly modern necessities like flat-screen televisions, electrical outlets, or docks for digital devices.

Pieces from the Streamline Modern Collection are built through a process organized to guarantee the highest quality of materials, structure, and finish. They begin with the selection of rare and beautiful materials. Next, all work is conducted by skilled craftsmen and artisans who are formally educated in specialized areas of furniture production and other disciplines such as lighting design, sculpting or art and fabric design. The artisans work within different divisions in the factory, each purpose-built for the specific task at hand. The result is a piece that is elegant, harmonious, and ready for a lifetime of everyday enjoyment.

The dedication to our outstanding quality is evident in our attention to detail and the tradition of craftsmanship within our company. Such has become our signature within the design community.
