Hooked rugs are a traditional part of American art, and the style itself first arose in England before it made it to the colonies. Strong floral and leaf motifs are often present throughout these antique rug masterpieces, and it is not uncommon for many arrangement to dominate the space without the use of excessive patterning or bordering.
