Many weaving centers have produced carpet runners specifically for narrow spaces, adapting their age old designs to suit this specific format. Perhaps the most renowned weavers of vintage carpet runners were the Bidjar tribe of Northern Iran whose sturdy weavings withstand the wear and tear of stair treads and busy passageways. Superb antique runner shave been produced in the city workshops of Tabriz and Kirman, as well as in rural communities of Northwest Persia, and villages of both the Caucasus and rural Anatolia. Antique carpet runners are often utilized as a complement or a contrast to adjacent European Art Deco rugs, or as the transition linking two separate rooms.
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.
