The increasing intrusion of technology into daily life fostered the development of the Art Deco during the 1920s and 1930s. This aimed to make use of new materials and techniques while retaining a simple, functional style. The result was angular, abstract and geometrical shapes usually with a highly lustrous finish and often inlaid with exotic materials.

While the most accomplished Art Deco designers were French, the style flourished in America but mostly in mass-produced furniture of lesser quality.
