In the 1930s, Shanghai, China was swept up in the Art Deco design movement. Design, architecture, art, fashion, and furniture were all influenced by this modern movement that permeated every part of life in the bustling, vibrant city. Filled with traditional Chinese decorative motifs, this wool carpet nonetheless exemplifies the qualities that make Art Deco design so sought after: simple lines, striking colors, and bold geometric patterns. Taking months or even years to create, this handwoven carpet is made of the softest wool dyed with natural vegetable dyes to produce its luscious colors. The rug’s vibrant magenta ground is strewn with beautifully rendered floral bouquets, interspersed with timeless scholars' objects, including vases, scrolls, hairpins, censers, and magpies. A charming scene of a towering pagoda lies at the center in lieu of traditional medallion motif, framed by a bright golden border with magenta trim.
