Aubusson rugs are fine European hand woven rugs from the village of Aubusson, France. Typically, these rugs are flat weave rugs without pile. The Aubusson styles range from adapted Oriental designs to classically European Rococo and floral designs. The rugs were often commissioned by the very wealthy to fill large rooms, and as a result it is more common to find large antique Aubusson rugs than small area rugs. Due to the fine artistry and celebrated history of Aubussons, they are highly valued antiques.
