The French crafts designer and decorator Paul Follot is an Art Deco traditionalist. His first designs were inspired by the Neo-Gothic school. At the beginnig of the 20th Century, Follot co-founded "L'Art dans Tout", a little known group of artists who fought fiercely for the French crafts tradition. These artists viewed themselves as threatened by the growth of industrialization, including German industrial design. From 1910 a more reticent, classical style shows up in Follot's work, a tendency that increased with the rise of European Art Deco. This vintage French Deco rug by Paul Follot is perhaps indicative of these tendencies; while the look is certainly abstract and well within the confines of modern art, it focuses on nature, and a soft floral look in brown, beige and blue. The European Deco vintage carpet is a must-have for the selective collector.
