Art Deco is an influential visual arts design style that first appeared in France before World War I. It became popular internationally in the 1920s, 1930s and 1940s but waned after World War II. It is an electric style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials and is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation. It represented luxury, glamour, exuberance and faith in social and technological progress during its heyday.
