Mid-20th century Art Deco Gray, Red, Yellow, Brown Handmade Wool Rug BB5176 6'8" × 10'0" $7,000
European Art Deco design ideas and creative patterns, in respect to their design use in the creation of precious antique carpets and rugs, have repeatedly captivated the world. Antique Art Deco carpets are expressionist, avant garde creative and definitely elicit analytical reactions in the viewer. Sometimes you can only honor artistic weave technique conventions by defying them. This vintage Art Deco vintage rug has no conventional field design, medallion motif pattern, corner brackets, a guard border or main border. The open field of this carpet is colored an all over chroma scheme of stone grey.
The stone grey colored field is awash in dynamic, horizontal bars of striking color. The horizontal, zebra themed striped lines are colored rich tones of red, black, yellow and white. The top and bottom borders of the European deco rug are very thin and light camel colored.
Art Deco is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I. 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.
