The De Stijl movement encompassed a new addition in modern art, architecture. This art movement used their artistic talent by designing homes, buildings, and furniture. Unlike most architects during the time, the De Stijl movement signified a new trend, its own name meaning "The Style". Their architecture consisted of mainly solid geometric shapes, such as triangular chairs, and sphere like windows. While their art must have appeared rather radical for the time, their success as architectural artists was phenomenal. The artists maintained close ties to intellectualism and philosophy. The De Stijl movement represented a part of art that also used bold and primary coloring. Their movement indeed represented a favorable style.
