Art Deco and Modernist Carpets
The design revolutions of the early 20th century were woven into the very fabric of the carpets and rugs of that era. Art Deco and Modernist Carpets, the first in-depth history, charts the evolution of carpet design out of the floral effusions of the Victorian salons and into the angular elegance of Art Deco and bold abstraction of Modernism popularized by the machine age. Such artists and designers as Picasso, Poiret, Gray, Delaunay, Matisse, Klee, and many more advanced the designs going on underfoot, making these rugs extremely collectible artworks in their own right. Generously sized and beautifully illustrated with over 250 full-color photographs, here are Art Deco and Modernist carpets at their most glorious.88% (10)
Original 1930s carpet
Apologies if this is the wrong group to post in, but I think it must be quite rare to find 1930s floor coverings still intact these days, and interesting to see how well they co-ordinate with other fittings such as fireplaces. Found at the bottom of several generations of other carpets in a house we are are currently renovating. These houses were built in 1935, and I think this would have been the original floor covering, over the original 'zig-zag' patterned lino (rather than dark-brown stained floorboard edges that are more usual in these houses). The colours closely match the only surviving original tiled fireplace left in the house, which is also azure blue marbled with purple-brown. Generally I really like these sorts of geometric designs, with opposing light-to-dark gradients, and feel this is quite a good example. I'm really not sure what to do with it; it is a little bit too worn to use in its current condition (plus our cat would certainly damage it further). Any thoughts on how it might be cleaned, restored or rehomed welcomed.Joan Crawford with Paul Poiret 1929
Paul Poiret (1879 - 1944): The son of a Parisian shopkeeper, Poiret became a dress designer in 1896 after meeting Jacques Doucet. In 1910 he visited Vienna, met Josef Hoffmann and took inspiration from the textile and fashion designs of the Wiener Werkstatte. He founded his Atelier Martine in 1911 and his Maison Martine on Fauborg Saint-Honore sold rugs, carpets and wallpapers. Together with his long-term collaborator, the painter Raoul Duty, Poiret began a studio for printing textiles, La Petite Usine. In 1908 and 1911 Poiret published volumes of his designs, which was in itself an innovative step, and as a result he was received warmly when he visited America in 1913. Although he continued work in the 1920s and 1930s, his contribution to the 1925 Paris Exposition, three decorated barges, brought Poiret to the edge of financial ruin.
