Beautiful Large Antique French Art Deco Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: French Rugs, Circa Date: 1920’s – France is the home of the Art Deco movement, and this gorgeous French rug from the 1920s is an excellent example of the style. Art Deco artists played an important role in art history and design that set the foundation for contemporary styles over the next several decades. It is a gorgeous piece for your historical home or for contemporary styles, too.
This rug is a design based on Persian rugs that have been produced since the 16th century. However, rather than the crisp design that you see in Persian rugs, this piece uses muted colors and abstract designs. It is an Art Deco rendition of a historical piece.
While this piece would have broken the rules of the Paris Exhibition, we can still admire its beauty today. The design has balance and symmetry, as it is based on a classic medallion design. The colors are bright and vibrant, allowing it to bring a cheerful ambiance to the room.
