Art Deco was a popular design movement from the 1920’s to 1930’s, a movement between the two World Wars. This movement affected all forms of art from architecture, interior design, sculpture, furniture, industrial design and visual arts such as fashion, clothing, jewelry, paintings, graphic arts and film. This movement combined many different styles and movements such as neoclassical, constructivism, cubism, modernism, art nouveau and futurism.
The bold use of stepped forms and sweeping curves, chevron patterns and the sunburst motif are typical of Art Deco.
