Magnificent Round Antique French Art Deco Rug by Leleu 49382, Country of Origin / Rug Type: French Rug, Circa Date: 1920 – This French Art Deco rug is by Leleu features a unique round design configuration and stunning concentric patterns.
This magnificent Leleu rug features bold colors and eye catching designs that draw the eye toward the center of the unique circular shape. The central medallion has a floral or sun inspired shape and features the most solid use of color. The outer border of this round antique French art deco rug also features solid color, as well as the main circular pattern that exists perfectly between the two. This central line, instead of being simply a solid line, has a distinct filigree-like design to it, creating a level of sophistication. These three areas have very bold color and visually read as slightly darker, therefore seeming to divide the antique rug into sections. The entire circular round rug also features a cream colored ground which contrasts beautifully with the bold use of color in the designs and patterns.
Between these stripes of bold color there are webbing-like designs which have a lighter feel due to the appearance of open space between the lines. Toward the center, these lines become more densely packed together, creating a feeling of everything within the French rug being drawn toward the center. There are different design elements mixed in with this webbing design, including lighter colored lines as well as diamond shapes that sit in the open spaces left between the red lines.
Overall, the design of this round antique French art deco rug, that was created by the iconic Leleu, is extremely symmetrical and the concentric designs give it a distinct oculus-style design that is extremely unique. This is, hands down, one of the most artistic and beautiful Leleu French Art Deco rugs!
