Vintage rugs – they are essential objects of desire of not only vintage trend followers but all aficionados of beauty and sublime design. There is a good reason for such vast recognition as vintage carpets constitute the core of taste and artistry of the 20th century progressive thought. They are clearly defined by the past century’s celebration of new ideas, modern lifestyle and the Renaissance of all arts which happened about that time. The category of arts and crafts style rugs has many faces – there are numerous aspects such as historical period, style, fashion, culture, symbolism and philosophy which add up to form the dazzling array of vintage carpets. Among this sensational collection one will find pieces coming from Scandinavia, Morocco, China, England and Continental Europe – in brief, from all over the world. Each and every one of those cultural circles differs severely, so does the philosophy behind vintage antique rug designs coming from various parts of the globe. However, one thing they have in common – the undeniable quality, which makes them perfect utilitarian objects in modern households, besides being absolute works of art.
