Rugs & Tapestries
The easiest way to bring warmth and character to a room is with a beautiful French rug or tapestry. The most well-known name in rugs and tapestries in France is Aubusson, which is actually the name of a town in France where they have been made since the 1500’s. Unlike Oriental rugs, antique French rugs were usually custom made for the client and the designs were created by artists.
The patterns reflect the aesthetics of the time as seen in architecture, paintings and the landscape. Tapestries make the perfect backdrop for elegant furniture and add another dimension to a room. Antique tapestries are all handmade and sometimes the vibrant original colors can still be seen if the tapestry has not been exposed to sunlight.
