Here’s an Art Deco Collection Custom Carpet of an exquisite Gustave Miklos design. His original Modernist/Cubist-inspired rug was designed for the 1925 Paris Exposition. The design, which fuses asymmetry with harmony of color and compositional balance creates a scene stealing cubist effect. The rug is smaller in scale (3’ X 5.5’ or 4’ X 7’) and would best be utilized in a smaller area to be shown (not covered), in essence, as floor art.Gustave Miklos - Bio Art Deco sculptor and designer Gustave Miklos was born in Budapest, Hungary in 1888.
