Art Deco Chinese Rugs

7.12.2013



I'm a big fan of lots of Tyler Dawson's work, and the above is my favorite room in her portfolio.  Everything in the room is fantastic, but the two elements that really draw me in are the rug and the abstract.  That rug is an Art Deco Chinese rug, and it's fabulous.  These rugs have such incredible color and pattern.  I think it would be so much fun to design a room around one.  Are you familiar with Art Deco rugs?  If not, you can read about them and their history here.

OKL had a sale last September that I missed.  I would have loved seeing these rugs and the others they  offered.

Below, I have some examples.  My favorite (no surprise) is this first one.  

















What do you think?  Do you have a favorite here?  Do you like these, or are they too much for you?  They are definitely not for everyone.  The room I imagine creating with the first one is amazing.  I'd absolutely love it.

Happy Friday!!

I love the rugs you highlighted. I prefer them to have an allover pattern and less negative space but the vibrant colors might make me reconsider.

This one is definitely my favorite! http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-6CSUGlybDRk/Ud-WekaYeRI/AAAAAAAANYM/ZBzUp1mjdF4/s1600/artdecochineserug10.png. I love the little pagoda in the corner.

These are my all time favorite rugs!! I found one on Craigslist recently for $750 and I was so tempted because they are usually crazy expensive!

Except for the white-ground rug that looks like Licorice All-Sorts, most of these particular designs are too busy for my tastes--I like a solid color field with only minimal designs in a corner or two--but I've always liked Chinese Deco rugs' wacky color combinations, and someday I'll find one that fits both my room and my budget. That is, I will if, in the meantime, they don't suddenly get trendy & become too expensive.
