    First published 2002

    Art Deco and Modernist Carpets ranges through the supremely imaginative achievements of Paul Poiret’s unique weaving studio, the Ecole Martine, the designs of Sonia Delaunay, Eileen Gray and Jean Lurçat, the Scandinavian folk traditions of Märta Måås-Fjetterström, limited editions of rugs woven from works by such artists as Picasso, Klee and Miró, the innovations of Frank Lloyd Wright and Donald Deskey in the USA and Gunta Stölzl’s handwoven carpets in Germany.

    Susan Day’s exceptional book, a work of original scholarship accompanied throughout by spectacular illustrations both of the carpets themselves and of contemporary interiors, demonstrates that these Art Deco carpets have lost none of their decorative power. A significant number of the carpets are shown precisely as they were meant to be seen, within the rooms for which they were made.

    The book’s invaluable reference section includes detailed information on artists, manufacturers and retailers, their signatures and monograms, and a glossary and bibliography.
