My favorite era in the early 1900's is the Art Deco Era. I can easily get in a Deco State Of Mind. We can duplicate these times, but never regain the feelings of days gone by. .so I have chosen a few of you to dedicate this set.........."just because".........you all are one of the true Polyvore artist in many ways.

Art Deco was an art movement that manifested itself between the two world wars, particularly in the 1920s and 1930s, and involved architecture, furniture design, decorative art, as well as painting and sculpture. The description ‘Art Deco’ means different things to different people. To some it implies opulent Parisian furnishings. To students of Modernism it suggests Minimalism in design. For others it means Manhattan skyscrapers or bakelite radios. The influence of painting movements such as Cubism, Russian Constructivism and Italian Futurism, with their abstraction, distortion and simplification, are all evident in Art Deco decorative arts. The style could be said to represent a ‘machine age aesthetic’, where the flowing, floral motifs of Art Nouveau were replaced with streamlined, geometric designs that expressed the speed, power and scale of modern technology.

At the beginning, the Art Deco movement just occurred in France, but grew to extend into Britain, Italy, other European countries, and to North America. The extensive artistic exchange between Paris, France, and New York City that occurred after World War I expanded its influence in this country, and the style caught on in the U.S. in the late 20s. Although Art Deco as a decoration style was popular in 1920s and '30s, it was not known by that name until its revival in the 1960s. The term Art Deco was derived by a British art critic from the name of the 1925 Paris Exposition des Arts Decoratifs Industriels et Modernes, which had been publicized as a celebration of living in the modern world.
