Art Deco

A powerhouse style movement spanning the 1920s through to the bust and depression era of the 1930s. Originating in Paris in 1925 after the French government sponsored a large exhibition titled ‘Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes’, to showcase this ‘new style’ to the world. The style is characterised by boldly delineated geometric shapes and strong colours, used most notably in architecture and household objects.
