Sophisticated African Retro Rug Type / Country of Origin: India Circa Date: Modern / New – This vibrant African Retro carpet has an abstract contemporary design that is perfect for a room based on a neutral tone. The blue and browns are earthy, but the geometric form has a decidedly modern appeal. The carpet would be the perfect addition for defining a space within an open plan loft or office.

One of the more recent design trends is adding layers of different patterns within the room, and this piece would be perfect for a layered effect. The geometric lines add drama and motion to the piece, but it is tempered by a harmonious color combination. This may look like a contemporary piece, but the design is inspired by the traditional weaving patterns of the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

For generations, these patterns have been passed down and were woven into a type of cloth known as Kuba cloth. The designs often have special meaning for the tribal people. They are natural and organic, often expressing ideas, such as the changing of the seasons or they might represent objects from their daily life.

During the mid-20th century, abstract interior designers drew inspiration from these traditional designs that had a mid century modern look, but also, an organic quality. This gorgeous piece has a timeless character with its African retro origins, mid century appeal, and yet, it fits perfectly into contemporary design ideology. The colors are gorgeous, and the design is fascinating. It is a beautiful piece that will add interest to the room and make a statement in any retro-inspired home or office space.
