Vintage Deco French Rug by Decoration Interieure Moderne 1845
Art Deco Rug, England, Early 20th Century - A classic modernist pattern of intersecting circles and crescents in shades of mauve, taupe, sand, and cocoa unfolds dynamically across the field of this grand vintage carpet. The understated monochrome border allows the design to dominate the piece, much like an abstract painting. The rich, velvety pile adds an element of opulence to the crisp, modern feel of the design.
