An Aubusson Style Wool Rug 
20th Century
12 feet 2 inches x 8 feet 7 inches.

Aubusson rugs were first introduced in the 17th century when weavers began to create carpets and tapestries for royal castles in France. These handwoven flat-weave carpets were tightly woven, using only the best quality wool.  Designs are technically hand carved. Unlike Persian oriental carpets, the carving highlights the main patterns that pop up on the face of the area rug.

 

Purchased from Casa de Suenos, Miami Beach

A 1930s Mediterranean Revival estate overlooking Biscayne Bay, it was originally built for a President of General Motors and then acquired in the late 1990s by the current owners Loren and J.R. Ridinger. The couple are the founders of Market America—a revolutionary product brokerage and internet marketing company—while Loren is also a well-known fashion, beauty, and business leader recognized by VogueHaute Living, and Forbes magazines. Using historical photos of the estate, the couple acquired period furniture, art, and decorative objects to help realize their vision of contemporary life in a historic setting.
