Description This circa-1930 vintage French Deco rug by Paule LeLeu features an all-over design of repeating diamond shapes in green against a beige field. The stark geometrics of the vintage carpet add to the minimalist and modern feel of the Deco piece. Daughter of the French sculptor Jules Leleu, Paule became the chief rug designer at her father's business, the House of LeLeu. Her works are often characterized by symmetrical arrangements and repeating geometric motifs. European Art Deco owes its name to the first major exhibition of decorative arts to be held after the First World War: L'Exposition Internationale des Arts Decoratifs et Industriels Modernes held in Paris in 1925. The elegance of the custom at the event has served as inspiration for interior designers the world over, delivering a dramatic change of style to early 20th century rugs and carpets in particular. Decorative arts of this period are characterized by a streamlined appearance.
