Art Deco is a bright artistic phenomenon of the XX century that became popular in the 1920s and 1930s. This style absorbed elements of the European classical music, folk traditions and modernism and influenced the design of buildings, furniture, jewelry, fashion, cars, movie theaters, trains, and even everyday objects such as radios and vacuum cleaners.
