i am a student at a school and i have looked on yahoo, google and ask.com asking the question why did art deco start but couldn't find an answer could you please help and answ…er this question. Thank-you Art Deco started because before the WW1 and WW2 countries like america had a lot of money, meaning they had money to waste. Because of this, they started to create extravagant pieces of furniture and art and even showing art deco in buildings. It's no until after the WW1 and WW2 that countries were no where near as rich as they were, because they had to rebuild there country and economy. After this they couldn't create extravagant things like they did and came up with a cheaper option called streamline moderne which is basically a plastic and metal version.(MORE)
Art Deco was named after the 1925 Paris Exposition des Arts Decoratifs. It did not get its name until the 1960s when there was a revival in interest in the decorative arts of …the 1920s and 30s and a major analysis of the work from that time was begun by Bevis Hiller who wrote the first book about Art Deco in 1968.

The Art Deco period began around 1900 and ended around 1930. At least, however, this is the period during which the greatest volume of work was produced the whole world round.… And in many parts of Europe it stopped right then. In the United States Art Deco mananged to survive the Depression and continued until the beginning of WW II. The 1939 New York World's fair was probably the last great event in the Art Deco style .
