Modernist Jean Cocteau Style Rug N11642 11'6" × 11'9"
This exceptional contemporary rug shows what wonderful things may emerge from the marriage between the centuries-old craft of carpet weaving and the Modernist aesthetic thought. Its design was inspired with the works of the brilliant jean Cocteau, a paramount exponent of avant-garde in a wide array of arts. His characteristic style is expressed in the main, borderless field by the seemingly reckless scribbles, resembling the hand-writing of the artist. The allover, spare pattern is executed in a deep brown hue, bordering on black, against the ivory background – just like a dried fountain pen’s ink on a handmade piece of paper. The balanced composition is elegantly finished with subtle touches of the dark hue running along all the borers of this Modernist-inspired rug. Although presently made, the carpet was masterfully hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with traditional weaving techniques by a skilled artisan. Due to such thorough execution, the piece is distinguished by the upmost durability and will surely serve its owners for generations without the slightest signs of blemish. This modernist Jan Cocteau style rug, thanks to its versatility and timeless elegance, will easily match a vide variety of interior décors, from classic to modern. It is an option for all design aficionados and art connoisseurs.
