Mid-20th century French Art Deco Design Beige, Black, Orange Handmade Wool Rug BB7070 4'7" × 7'0" $12,000
Art Deco rugs combine ancient weaving craft with rather contemporary aesthetics, incorporating such iconic design influences as neoclassicism, constructivism, cubism, minimalism, modernism or art nouveau. This vintage rug, created circa 1948, is an example of French Deco.
The field of the midcentury rug carries an abstract design whose main strength lies in its color palette. The combination of orange, beige and black is balanced and invigorating. The composition is finished with a fringe at the shorter edges of the rug.
The French Deco rug was made by hand of high-quality wool in accordance with traditional techniques. Under the condition of proper maintenance, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
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.
