Nichols Rug

This was at the antique mall last Sunday in Solana Beach. 9×11 $575.00 (good price). The leaf motif is a bit autumnal for my taste, but the colors are betterin person and could nicely ground a room. My rug dealer friends always say that one should design a room starting with a rug. I tend to agree as it helps to focus what one wants to do. I remember a rug dealer at ABC carpets who used to call these happy rugs: because you just look at them and they make you smile!

Nichols were made in China for the US market and therefore replicate the market’s idea of chinoiserie taste–deco–c 1920’s -30’s.
