The turn of the 20th century brought a wave of changes that affected not only the sociopolitical field but also all forms of artistic expression. It was then, particularly in the 1920s, when Art Deco – Arts Décoratifs – was born, a trend that combined modernist styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials. During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress. The style infiltrated the world of carpet manufacturers, leading to the creation of fabulous Art Deco rugs, ready to compliment the modern décor and Art Deco furnishings, unlike antique carpets for sale from the previous era.
