Art Deco

Art Deco (/ˌɑrt ˈdɛkoʊ/), or Deco, is an influential visual arts design style which first appeared in France during the 1920s, flourished internationally during the 30s and 40s, then waned in the post-World War II era.[1] It is an eclectic style that combines traditional craft motifs with Machine Age imagery and materials. The style is often characterized by rich colors, bold geometric shapes and lavish ornamentation.

Deco emerged from the Interwar period when rapid industrialization was transforming culture. One of its major attributes is an embrace of technology. This distinguishes Deco from the organic motifs favored by its predecessor Art Nouveau.

Wallpaper Description:

Duesenberg ceased production in 1937 after Cord's financial empire collapsed. However, between 1937 and 1940, one car put the final touch to this historical marque.

It it took three years to complete both the tailor-made interior and futuristic body. By command of the owner, it was to be painted in a two-tone grey paint scheme so it would look like a ghost in the night. Finished in 1939, this legendary masterpiece was christened as:
"Duesenberg Coup Simone Midnight Ghost."

The car was made by Emmet-Armand Coachworks of Green Brier, Pennsylvania in the Unites States on the basis of the Duesenberg Type J. They only made one of them which was ordered by the French cosmetics king Gui (Guy) De LaRouche. It was both the longest Duesenberg and the last one delivered; and finally the last one ever made.

Inspired by the modernist lines of the Art Deco movement, it captures all the romance of a bygone era. The graceful sweep of the fenders, the luxuriously appointed interior complete with a crystal-clear steering wheel.
