H. F. du Pont acquired floor coverings as well as other furnishings used in early American homes. His collection ranged from an 18th-century American floor cloth to imported English, French, and Near and Far-eastern examples—Turkish, Persian, Caucasian, and Chinese. One example from France is an Aubusson rug of the late 19th century with a starburst central medallion. Hickory Chair Company's artists were inspired by the medallion in the design of the Lammot Mirror.
