Vintage French Art Deco Carpet by Decore Installe Meuble, Origin: France, Circa: 1920 – In recent years, the design aesthetics of the French Art Deco period – which first burst onto the scene in the 1910’s and remained hugely important up until World War II – have enjoyed a renewed interest. Generally speaking, Art Deco is characterized by rich color, bold shapes, and lavish ornamentation. This beautiful vintage rug, which is contemporary with the height of the Art Deco movement, espouses each of these qualities. The reds and pinks though the design of this impressive rug is worked are confident as well as eye catching. Geometric figures appear throughout the piece, and even the more concrete portraits that are the central subject largely consist of exaggerated geometric impressions. Finally, the lavish ornamentation that is so central to Art Deco values is very present here, with lines and shapes decorating the areas of negative space throughout. Attributed to the Decoration Interieure Moderne, this Art Deco carpet is authentic as it is timelessly appealing.
