Art Deco is a movement in the decorative arts and architecture that originated in the 1920s and developed into a major style in western Europe and the United States during 1930s.

Art Deco works are symmetrical, geometric, streamlined, often simple, and pleasing to the eye. The characteristic features of the style reflected admiration for the modernity of the machine and for the inherent design qualities of machine-made objects (e.g., relative simplicity, planarity, symmetry, and unvaried repetition of elements).

Occasionally, we crave artistic elements to adorn our living space, pieces that reflect our daily musings and inspirations. Today, I'll be sharing some Art Deco-inspired decor ideas perfect for embellishing the area above your sofa.

6. Women Empowerment Art Deco Themed

The 1920s and 1930s started the Art Deco trends across Europe and the United States. Coco Chanel. Greta Garbo. Josephine Baker. Zelda Fitzgerald. Icons of the Jazz Age and the flapper lifestyle, these women were rule-breakers: cigarette-smoking, cocktail-sipping, scantily clad, self-empowered rebels. The end of World War I and the stock market boom boosted their confidence; women now had the security they needed to make further strides in politics, culture, and life at home. This was an era of negotiation for women’s rights. And posters, by some of the finest posterists in the United States and abroad, played a significant role in changing perceptions of women’s place in society.
