Vintage Deco Rug BB5192 6'8" × 10'0"
This World War II era European Art Deco rug is a vintage find that features a medallion of a spider web-like pattern radiating in an all-over design across a beige-oatmeal field. The carpet has a corner bracket design in the form of curvilinear, circular shapes, and a simple rectangular border. The patterns are dark brown over beige, with a light beige series of intersecting lines serving as the background pattern. The European Deco style is represented by the simplicity and geometric precision contrasting with the free-form central design. Decorative arts of this period, sometimes known as the Machine Age, are characterized by a streamlined appearance. The clean, dark sharp lines stand out in stark contrast to the subtle beige of the field. Though elegantly simple, this vintage carpet does not lack for elaborate detail upon closer inspection.
