High-quality Vintage French Art Deco Rug by Paul Follot BB5243 6'0" × 10'9" $9,000
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 European Art 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.

The Art Deco movement led to a fast evolution of the rug and textile design, among other art forms. Rug design evolved from traditional floral and highly ornamental to a style of angular elegance with geometric, abstract and modern figurative motifs. The design is frequently spare, geometric, and architectural. The rugs created during this period remain elegant and refined to this day.
