French Art Deco Rug BB7696 7'9" × 11'7" $25,000
A rare and original Art Deco rug featuring a characteristic geometric pattern. Designs such as this one are influenced by Cubism. The organic embellishments overlapping some of the geometric shapes are a distinguishing feature of the early Art Deco carpets, reminiscing the Art Nouveau Style.
A modernized central medallion in vivacious shades of pink, red, and orange, and ornate corners in a similar style and colors, are standing out against a neutral field of taupe and beige rectangles.
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.
