Art deco is a style of visual arts, architecture, and design that dominated the 1920s and 1930s, characterized by precise, boldly delineated geometric shapes, bold colors, patterns of curves and lines, and the use of synthetic materials, such as plastics, glass, and concrete. It was intended to create a sleek, modern, non-traditional style symbolizing wealth and sophistication. I

Art deco’s popularity began to decline in the 1940s as newer styles emerged, but it saw a resurgence in the 1960s and 1970s and still holds universal appeal today.

Today, art deco is still a popular style, used in everything from fashion to architecture.
