Art Deco is a style of visual arts, architecture and design that first appeared in France just before World War I. It combines modern styles with fine craftsmanship and rich materials. During its heyday, Art Deco represented luxury, glamour, exuberance, and faith in social and technological progress.
Art Deco designs are influenced by the bold geometric forms of Cubism and the Vienna Secession; the bright colors of Fauvism, the extraordinary craftsmanship of the furniture from the eras of Louis Philippe I and Louis XVI, and the exotic styles of China, Japan, India, Persia, ancient Egypt and Mayan art. Art Deco is one of the first truly international styles, but its dominance ended with the beginning of World War II and the rise of the strictly functional and unadorned styles of modernism.
Art Deco Rugs feature designs ranging from floral to angular elegance with modern, abstract and figurative motifs. The color palate is both bold and muted with interesting juxtapositions of light and dark. The design is frequently spare, geometric, and architectural with a luxurious feel.
