Antique American Hooked Rug, Country of Origin: America, Circa 1900 – One of the more recent style trends that are beginning to take hold is the use of rugs that are not classic square, round, or rectangular. Rugs with an abstract shape help to define the space and add interest. Another trend is the addition of vibrant colors to the space. Even those who embrace minimalism are now beginning to add pops of color through unique pieces and accessories.

Hooked rugs are an American craft with roots in the Colonial Era when women would use fabric scraps punched through a piece of plain fabric to create beautiful patterns. It began as a craft for the poor, but when manufactured rugs became the norm, it would eventually fall out of favor. In the mid-1800s, the craft of rug hooking would once again be taken up, but now, it would be a pastime of the wealthy class who had time for leisure activities.

Rug hooking remained an important pastime with the patterns and colors evolving with style trends. This piece uses abstract circular shapes and a meandering border. This rug would be perfect for an Arts and Crafts-style or Victorian home. It would lend a sense of authenticity to historic architecture and make a colorful addition to a room of contemporary or ultra-modern furniture.

Today’s styles are all about creating contrast in the space. This rug will add interest and break up the lines of ultra-modern decor. Round shapes and arches are becoming more popular, and this rug adds an organic quality to the space with its meandering lines and pattern that is reminiscent of waves in a pool.

This rug is an excellent way to add a splash of color to the space and opens many opportunities for using color as an accent. This rug is a perfect size for placing it in front of a sofa or under a table to create a unique vignette. This rug is a piece of Americana that is perfect for showing your artistic side and will make an excellent addition to a contemporary or classic space.
