Ar Deco -is an influential visual arts design style that first appeared in France just before World War I and began flourishing internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s before its popularity waned after World War II.

Art Deco was very popular in the 1930’s. Linear designs, sharp angles and symmetry are present in art deco design. Brass, glass, black and chrome were popular materials.
