Art Deco, short for the French Arts Décoratifs, is a style of visual arts, architecture, and product design, that first appeared in France in the 1910s, and flourished in the United States and Europe during the 1920s to early 1930s. 
The distinguishing features of the style are simple, clean shapes, often with a “streamlined” look; ornament that is geometric, symmetrical and stylized from representational forms such as florals, animals, and sunrays
