Vintage Viennese Art Nouveau Pale Rose and Dusty Orange Hand Knotted Wool Carpet BB6644 10'4" × 13'10" $35,000
Distinguished by flowing forms combining architectural accents with nature, this vintage Viennese Art Nouveau rug is a marvelous hallmark of its époque. Its curvilinear main field carrying a stylized design with botanical motifs is enclosed within a decorative cartouche. The borders of this antique European rug are adorned with a fret pattern and four corner spandrels. Although quite rich, the composition has a palpable lightness to it.
In contrast to the later European Deco rugs, this one features a very subtle color palette. The shades of sepia and extinguished green are gently invigorated thanks to pale rose and dusty orange. Versatile and balanced, such a composition will effortlessly complement even very modern décors.
Finally, this vintage Art Nouveau rug can boast of impeccable workmanship. It was thoroughly made by hand of top-notch wool to ensure its durability. The very fact that the vintage carpet has remained practically untouched by time is the best evidence for its quality. If properly maintained, it will withstand years of usage showing no signs of blemish.
