20th century and 1950s styled carpets
Prices of 20th century "modern" designs--such as Art Deco and the 1950s look--have risen steadily. New reproduction carpets with these designs have been offered by a large home furnishings mail order catalog.
The new carpets are being hand made in China of 100% wool. Designs range from Art Deco geometrics to Picasso-influenced motifs. Colors of new carpets are similar to those in originals. Priced from $100-$800 based on size.
