Many from the region of Tianjin, where weavers first introduced secondary color palettes, these uncommon, eye-catching designs blend old world style and haute deco character. Design elements include surreal pictorial scenes, exotic flowers, and asymmetrical patterns with rich vibrant colors and jewel tones. Sizes range from 2’x3’ to 13’x20’.

This collection is composed of some of the most unique rugs in the market today. Highly sought after by collectors and consumers alike, Chinese Art Deco rugs of this sort are widely appreciated for their individuality, just as any truly great work of art.

With the resurgence of Asian influence in design and fashion, many designers are taking cultural cues and inspiration from the exotic design motifs of rugs and textiles in this realm. This unprecedented exhibition combines history and design to actualize an inspirational experience that will take the viewer on a visually stimulating yet historical journey.
