20th Century Rugs

Rug designs in the period known as the Mid 20th century, or the 1940’s through the 1960’s, are widely accepted as modern designs. Although production of mid-20th century rugs was stylistically anything from very traditional to very modern, what stands out are the designs that speak directly to the movement in design that was ‘design for everyone’, for every home in suburbia. Keep in mind that suburban neighborhoods were developed in the late 1950’s.
