Traditionally, Art Deco refers to a design period that spanned from the Roaring Twenties into the 1930s and is considered to be the most popular early 20th century decorative style. The style brings in glamour and luxury and is characterized by rich colors, distinct geometry, and lavish detail work.
Art Deco incorporates bold geometrical patterns in symmetrical arrangements or shapes and lines with vibrant, contrasting colors. Sharp angular designs, zig-zags, and chevrons are the hallmark of every authentic Art Deco design.
Our Art Deco-inspired rugs come in a variety of designs, sizes, and materials that will instantly liven up any area. Colors in Art Deco are striking and bold with a lot of contrasts. Bright, deep reds, blues, greens, yellows and pinks pair perfectly with accents of black, silver and chrome. Or if you prefer something softer, try creams and beiges; they look just as exceptional!
Meticulously crafted. Unique. One-of-a-kind designs. These are just a few words that come to mind describing all of Lawrence of La Brea’s Handmade area rugs.
Handmade area rugs are created from many different areas around the world. Rugs from Persia and India, and of course, Oriental rugs are a few of the most recognizable and most often instantly come to mind when you think of a handmade rug.
All Lawrence of La Brea handmade rugs reflect unparalleled craftsmanship: intricate details and motifs; personal stories of the weaver, the tribe, the region where the rug originated, make each handmade rug special. These rugs aren’t perfect by design…they are designed to tell a story.
Handmade rugs are available in a multitude of fabrics from cotton and chenille, from wool to silk. Every handmade rug is knotted by hand; therefore, the knots and weaving are not perfectly uniform. The quality, time, attention to detail, the vision behind each of the handmade rugs make each one an extraordinary treasure that can be enjoyed for many generations to come!
The mention of wool may no longer surprise you as this material is vastly known for its durability and quality. It has long been the norm that materials sourced from Mother Nature are inevitably some of the finest ones in the world.
Rugs made of wool come at a hefty price only because they last the longest, despite being a soft haven even when barefoot. Even more so if the wool is sourced from highlands where a sheep’s wool is thicker and would be more resistant to dirt, dust, and water.
Natural materials are always the superior quality in comparison to synthetic ones. The material of the base should be wool, silk, or cotton for better quality. Wool rugs should be completely matte in comparison to a shiny silk rug. Natural materials also have an effect of the air quality of the air in the room that it is placed in.
