Art Deco was a major design movement that began in the 1920s and flourished during the 1930s. It was characterized by luxurious materials, geometric shapes and bold colors. Art Deco drew inspiration from a variety of sources, including:

Modernist avant-garde of the early 20th century: This movement emphasized simplicity, functionality, and the rejection of traditional ornamentation.
Fine craftsmanship and rich materials of historic French design: Art Deco designers often used high-quality materials such as wood, metal, glass and ivory.
Motifs from non-Western cultures: Art Deco incorporated elements of Egyptian, Aztec and Mayan art.

Here are some of the key characteristics of Art Deco:

Geometric Shapes: Art Deco designers often used geometric shapes such as zigzags, chevrons, and circles. These shapes were often combined to create complex patterns.

Bold Colors: Art Deco colors were typically bright and saturated. Popular colors included black, white, gold, silver, red, green and blue.
Luxury Materials: Art Deco designers used a variety of luxury materials, such as chrome, stainless steel, Bakelite, lacquer, inlaid wood, and sharkskin.

Stylized Images: Art Deco designers often incorporated stylized images of animals, people, and machines into their work.

Streamlining: Streamlining is a design principle that emphasizes soft, curved lines and streamlined shapes. It was a popular motif in Art Deco design, as it reflected the excitement of the machine age.

Art Deco was a popular style for a wide range of products, including furniture, fashion, jewelry, architecture, and graphic design. It is still a popular source of inspiration for designers today.
