The French are the proponents of class in its most sophisticated form and that is why owning an antique rug in France is nothing unusual, even popular. The magnificent and original creations of Aubusson and Savonnerie, next to other antique, vintage and custom rugs present in our vast collection, are quite often purchased by the French who appreciate their profound and centuries-old heritage of carpet weaving. Antique rugs in France are a hit and we exactly know why. Why Antique Rugs in France are so Popular? France is one of the more attractive European countries, where we have the opportunity to admire many of its historic exhibits (including magnificent Aubusson and Savonnerie antique rugs in France). If someone is passionate about art, history or culture, he should spend his holiday there. The specific climate of the French towns and the opportunity to taste traditional dishes are just some of the benefits of leisure in this part of Europe. It is worth mentioning that according to the conducted research, France is still at the forefront of the most visited countries, which is the best confirmation of its tourist potential. France’s unique landscapes are one of the many attractions that make visitors stay in these areas every year. Of course, France is associated primarily with the numerous monuments that are located in its capital, among other things. It is Paris that enjoys the greatest interest of tourists, offering visitors numerous attractions. In this unusual city there is the Eiffel Tower, which is a symbol of France. Among other extremely important monuments, a special place is occupied by the Notre-Dame Cathedral, which dates back to the fourteenth century. The Arc de Triomphe also deserves a special mention, next to the Classical Pantheon. Of course, the highlight of Paris is the Louvre, one of the largest and most popular museums. It is there that you can admire the works of the most outstanding artists. No wonder that every year the museum is visited by real art lovers. Paris itself impresses not only with its monuments but also with its unique atmosphere, which makes it even more likable. Paris restaurants or pubs are places where you can not only taste traditional dishes, but also participate in local music concerts. This incredible cultural richness is one of the main reasons for the popularity of antique rugs in France. There are very few utilitarian objects that are so deeply rooted in antiquity, and so closely connect craft with high art.
