Mid-20th century French Art Deco White, Brown, Green Handmade Rug by Paule Leleu BB4995 12'0" × 15'3" $15,000
A French Deco Rug Designed by Paule Leleu for the house of Leleu. Paule was the daughter of Interior Designer Jules Leleu. The Blue green color is familiar to collectors of Leleu rugs. In this particular antique rug there is a border within a border which is well suited for furniture placement particularly in a sitting area. The design is mirrored in both directions.
Decorative rugs for the western market were originally made in countries such as India, Persia and Turkey. As the industrial revolution created a new merchant class, antique decorative vintage style area rugs were a sought-after status symbol demonstrating wealth and good taste. Watch any period film set in the late 19th or early 20th centuries and you will almost certainly see an oriental area rug on the floor.
