Beautiful and Elegant Antique French Savonnerie Design Chenille Rug, Country of Origin: America, Circa Date: Early 20th Century – Chenille rugs typically come from America, but the name of the rug itself comes from the French word for caterpillar to describe the texture of the yarn used to create the flat woven Kilim like rugs. Like many other French rugs, this early 20th century French Savonnerie design rug uses ample negative space in order to draw attention to the foreground patterning. Here, many neutral tones are established to create a cool and soothing color palette while simultaneously providing the ideal canvas for the floral motifs at the foreground.
