The staple style during the [[RoaringTwenties 1920s]] and [[TheGreatDepression 1930s]], with its geometrically futuristic linear design, Art Deco was applied in every field, including architecture, furniture, interior design, graphic design, fashion and typography. Its simplistic, symmetric, fluid and futuristic design was easily managed and breathable, in contrast to the frilly [[TheEdwardianEra Edwardian]] UsefulNotes/ArtNouveau designs. It took the world by storm after the 1925 Paris ''[[EverythingSoundsSexierInFrench Exposition Internationale des Arts Décoratifs et Industriels Modernes]]'' (although some claimed that the movement started as early as 1910), influenced by works of Romain de Tirtoff (better known as Erté), historical arts like Aztec, Egyptian and Mesopotamian, UsefulNotes/ArtNouveau, Bauhaus, Neoclassical, Futurist, Cubist and other modernist style movements. And its forms went on to every World's Fair from the 20s and 30s, then spread to all over the world. Although the term ''Art Déco'' is commonly used, the term was actually coined in TheSixties and TheSeventies during its resurgence after its popularity declined about UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo.

* In ''Film/TheHobbit'' and its sequels, the dwarf kingdom of Erebor, under the Lonely Mountain, takes its design cues from Art Deco as well, with jagged, angular or sharply parallel elements in its sculptures and interior carvings. The design choice may evoke the Dwarves' connection to mining and precious stones, many of which naturally occur in regular, crystalline, geometric shapes.

* The artstyle of ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'', from the buildings, to the shading, to the character designs, is heavily based on ArtDeco combined with FilmNoir elements. Creator/BruceTimm and his crew even named the animation style as ''Dark Deco''.
