The style was most popular in Europe, but its influence was global.
As a reaction toacademic artof the 19th century, it was inspired by natural forms and structures, not only in flowers and plants, but also in curved lines. Architects tried to harmonize with the natural environment.
Itis considered a "total" art style, embracing architecture,graphic art, interior design, and most of thedecorative artsincludingjewellery, furniture, textiles, household silver and other utensils andlighting, as well as thefine arts. According to the philosophy of the style, art should be a way of life. For many well-off Europeans, it was possible to live in an art nouveau-inspired house withart nouveau furniture, silverware, fabrics, ceramics including tableware, jewellery, cigarette cases, etc. Artists desired to combine the fine arts and applied arts, even for utilitarian objects.
