Meanwhile, a vintage carpet from Scandinavia may feature traditional, regional design elements, arranged in a novel manner. All that is to say that there is no practical limit to the variety of aesthetic values that one can find among vintage rug styles.

Things You Didn’t Know about Mid Century Vintage Rugs
Vintage mid century carpets from the mid 20th century have never been as popular as they are today. Available in a wide variety of designs, styles, colors and materials, vintage mid century modern rugs compliment pretty much with every type of interior decoration.
Since some people may have misconceptions about vintage rugs, here are 5 things you probably didn’t know about Vintage Rugs:
1. Mid Century Vintage Rugs Are Not The Same As Antique Rugs
Many people erroneously use the words vintage and antique rugs to mean the same thing. Generally speaking, the word “vintage” denotes sometime in the past, but not so far back in the past as to make them antique. To remove confusion, this label has been given to items that are at least 40 years old but not older than 80 years.
In the case of rugs, those made during the period spanning from the mid to late 1930’s through the 1970’s are called vintage rugs. The mid century was a great time for innovations in art, science and popular culture and the mid-century rugs reflect the cultures, styles and moods of the time perfectly.
2. Mid Century Vintage Rugs Were Made Everywhere
One can easily find vintage mid century rugs that were made in Turkey, Iran, India, Morocco, China and just about everywhere else in the world. These carpets reflect the styles and looks specific to the place of origin as well as the time period.
3. Mid Century Vintage Rugs Offer Representative Looks Of The Era / Year That They Were Made
Vintage rugs and mid century carpets are not so old that nobody knows when or where they were made. In fact, before buying a vintage rug, you should inquire about the era and location it was made. Knowing this will tell you about the design and style of the rug and may help with planning your interior decoration accordingly.
For example, the 1930’s vintage rugs from France may have patterns and motifs inspired by art deco rugs, which was popular at the time. That said, the rugs from the late 1960’s may be inspired by the pop art movement, which was making waves at the time.
4. Not All Mid Century Vintage Rugs Were Made In The Past
The word “vintage” does not exclusively indicate a particular time in the past. The term itself can also be understood to mean that the specific vintage design and style was popular in a certain time in the past.
Many manufacturers take advantage of this fact by creating products that are the exact replicas or reminiscent of products that were popular in the past and market / label them as ‘vintage’. Thus, not all vintage rugs you can find in the market are true mid century vintage rugs, although they look vintage enough.
5. Mid Century Vintage Rugs Go Well With Every Type Of Interior Style
Vintage carpets and mid century rugs come in such as wide variety of designs, styles and patterns that you can fit them in every type of interior decoration, including traditional, modern, contemporary and ultra-modern. This is the reason for their popularity.
