It bears a very "modernist' point of view and further, it was designed for the drawing room in the home of renown French fashion designer, Jacques Doucet in 1925. This rug design truly represents the forward thinking of the Art Deco movement. It is a rug that 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.
