Art Deco, also called style moderne, originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in western Europe and the United States during the 1930s.
In design and architecture Art Deco is a modernist style, meaning it focused on traits unique to the 20th century over stylistic traditions of the past. It plays with modern materials, such as steel and plate glass, and incorporates elements of architectural traditions from around the world into an original style. Perhaps the most striking aspect of art deco, however, is its flair. The Art Deco style is defined by a high level of ornamentation, generally in bright, metallic colors, that features sunbursts, zigzags, and other dramatic shapes which often have a graphic, flattened appearance.
