Art Deco, or Arts Décoratifs, is a visual arts movement that emerged from France just prior to the start of World War I and ended just before the outbreak of World War II. Art Deco is recognized for its bold colors and geometric patterns, high quality craftsmanship and luxury materials, and the exotic influence of the Middle and Far East. Textiles, upholstery and carpets played an important role in this movement, with inspirations for its designs being drawn from ballet stage sets and costume design.

Some of the most breathtaking examples of craftsmanship can be found in Art Deco Indian carpets. These popular Oriental rugs commonly feature open fields with minor medallions and spandrels, surrounded by intricate floral borders, drawing their inspiration from a wide range of global styles and influences. Indian carpets exhibit a mesmerizing appearance that can vary significantly in size, complexity, color, and composition.
Due to Western influence and European demand, the weavers became very prolific to keep up with demand. Designs appealed to Western tastes employing large-scale patterns featuring millefleur (thousands of flowers) motifs. A subtle color palette of light blues, yellow, teal and rust characterize these Indian rugs. Many rugs feature a cotton foundation, are double weft and use an asymmetrical knot, while others feature a superb quality wool, resulting in a luxurious feel.
With a large range of motifs, from the Agra rugs that carry Chinese influence, perfect for a Chinoiserie style setting, to the Mughal carpets, with their flower borders and animal and plant life inspiration, that will make an excellent addition to your vibrant space, to the spectacular Amritsar carpets that capture the exotic side of India while incorporating subtle colonial motif, these rugs display a wide variety of classic designs, artistic elements, and unique color combinations that are capable of blending in with any modern or elegant art and home furnishing. These art deco carpets are highly collectible, and will make a beautiful addition to your home or office.
