Vintage Rugs

Vintage rugs are most easily defined as those rugs or carpets produced from the 1920s through the 1970s. They represent the dramatic changes that took place in the arts following the First World War, when the era of Victorian salons gave way to cafe society. Vintage rugs often showcase experimentation and innovation. Modernism is the predominant theme. The rug styles included Art Deco, abstract, surrealist and minimalist designs. It was a worldwide movement that celebrated new ideas and values. For example, rugs produced in China during this period were influenced by the Art Deco rugs first produced in France. Meanwhile the Bauhaus school in Germany coupled fine art training and apprenticeships with craftsmen and theoretical instruction. This approach greatly influenced Scandinavian and American rug makers. Moroccan rugs with their modern interpretations of graphic and geometric tribal patterns are included in the Vintage Rug category as well.
