English Modernist Carpets

Franses specialise in English Modernist carpets.

The hand knotted carpets from the first third of the twentieth century are outstanding.  An exceptional collaboration between designers and studios resulted in some of the first Western carpets without borders.

Carpet designs were produced by, among others, Francis Bacon, Vanessa Bell, H J Bull, Marion Dorn, Edward McKnight Kauffer, Marian Pepler, Terence Prentis,  Evelyn Wyld.

Another example of an English modernist carpet designed by Marion Dorn, for the entertainer Gracie Fields, can be seen on this link /carpets/modernist-and-art-deco/
