The turn of the 20th century brought a wave of changes that affected not only the sociopolitical field but all forms of artistic expression. It was then, particularly in the 1920s , when Art Deco – Arts Décoratifs – was born, a trend that combined modernist styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials. During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. The style infiltrated the world of carpet manufacturers, leading to the creation of fabulous Art Deco rugs, ready to compliment the modern décor and Art Deco furnishings, unlike modern carpets for living room from the previous era.
Doris Leslie Blau carries an exceptional collection of original modern rugs in many styles and materials. Contemporary hand-made rugs are a bridge throughout history, they are the fruit of the constant evolution of the weaving craft that has accompanied men since the dawn of civilization.
