This lavishly illustrated volume focuses on the design and production of Western carpets from the Middle Ages to the present.

It offers an historical survey of the origins of these functional and decorative items, highlighting the Oriental influence on patterns and weaving techniques. Major carpet-producing countries, including France, Belgium, Great Britain, the United States, and Spain and Portugal, are highlighted in individual chapters, and the most renowned names in carpet production, including Aubusson, Beauvais, Exeter, Moorfields, and Savonnerie, among others, are prominently displayed in beautiful illustrations.

The concluding chapter covers avant-gardist design by notable architects and designers ranging from William Morris, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, and Victor Horta to Gustav Stickley, Frank Lloyd Wright, Victor Vasarely, Keith Haring, and Jack Lenor Larsen.
