Hungarian born designer and owner of Szalon (pronounced Salon) showroom in LA’s famed La Cienega Design Quarter, Judith Hoffman, presents a collection of Modernist rugs to her “Revivals Line” – a foray into furniture and decorative art production. Inspired by the works of Modernist masters, including Josef Hoffmann and Lajos Kozma, The “Revivals Line” celebrates the spirited flourishes in Central and Eastern European designs that are alternatives to more commonly known curves and angles of early 20th century Modernist and Art Deco furnishings.
Each piece in the collection can be custom made in any size requested. Below are the names and inspirations for the “Revivals Line” of rugs:
Hoffmanʼs decision to go into production reflects the increasing difficulty of finding rare antiques. As she says, “The more I go back to Hungary and Austria, the harder it is to find good pieces. Not much survived the wars, the Revolution, Communism.” The rug collection complements the Szalon gallery, which primarily features Hungarian and Austrian antiques, furnishings and decorative arts of the Art Deco, Secessionist and Bauhaus eras.
