Up until 17th Century the rug and carpet weaving centres of Europe were concentred in England, Spain and France mainly producing commissioned Coats of Arms rugs for Kings, Lords and Noblemen along with more decorative rugs inspired by Turkish and Persian designs. The most significant change in European design was during the French Renaissance when the Savonnerie and Aubusson design houses created ornate floral designs and carpet spectacular designs that mirrored the elegant ceilings of the Château that they were commissioned for.
The ornate design influences, Medallions and Florals of Savonnerie and Aubusson are still as relevant in today’s décor as they were in the 18th Century. The English Manor range of rugs is a woven Wilton with a super dense pile of 1,000,000 tufts per square metre giving the designs outstanding detail. The 100% Maclon Polypropylene is extremely durable, stain resistant and coloured for today’s décor, while staying true to the 17th and 18th century design influence of the original Savonnerie and Aubusson styles.
