To deform a rectangle we need to convert it to a path first.

  1. Draw and select rectangle.
  2. Choose Path > Object to Path.
  3. Choose the Edit Path by Nodes tool enter image description here (or F2)
  4. Select the corner nodes of the rectangle's top line

  7. Repeat step 4. to 6. for the bottom line.
