Art Deco rugs embody modernist progressive thought with the preservation of the finest weaving traditions and centuries-old techniques. Art Deco rugs combine the ancient craft with rather contemporary aesthetics, incorporating such iconic design influences as neoclassicism, constructivism, cubism, minimalism, modernism or art nouveau.
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.
