Art Deco is an art style that became very popular between 1920s to 1930s which combines modernist styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials, like ebony and ivory. In the 1930s, after the Great Depression, the style became more subdued, using new materials, including chrome plating, stainless steel and plastic.
