Looking for a Chicago Antique Rug Collection?
Known affectionately as the Windy City or simply Chicagotown, Chicago’s contribution to the arts primarily involves music – specifically, the blues, jazz and the roots of rock ‘n’ roll. Before the 20th century brought us Chicago music legends such as Gene Krupa, Benny Goodman, Quincy Jones and Muddy Waters, Chicago was home to missionaries, French explorers and fur traders in the 17th century and later to millions of European immigrants in the early 20th century.
Although Chicago’s early diversity supported a wide variety of artistic endeavors, most of the Windy City’s early artists were illustrators and painters of landscapes, nostalgic portraits and realistic scenes of city life. A contemporary rug collection in Chicago offering locally woven carpets and rugs will probably include vintage and contemporary rugs featuring urban, folk and traditional designs and colors. You also might find early 20th century tapestries in a Chicago antique rug collection made by specialty weavers who immigrated to the U.S. at the turn of the 20th century.
