Charming Colorful Berber Design Modern Distressed Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Modern – The beautiful rugs of the Berber tribes of Morocco have inspired designers for centuries. They were popular during the mid-20th century when they served as a contrast in rooms that featured streamlined elements and mid century modern style. Their patterns are whimsical, and we still love them just as much today.
Moroccan rugs continue to inspire us, and their colorful designs add energy to the space. This is a modern area rug that takes its inspiration from these vintage rugs. The artist included many of the elements of the traditional designs and pays homage to the traditions of the people and their cultural heritage in this piece.
In the traditional rugs, the colors and symbols told a story of the person’s life or tribal heritage. Changes in the pattern of the rug often signaled changes in the story. The artist masterfully captured this element in the design of the rug, or perhaps, they were inspired by a story of their own. The artist used softened colors and subdued tones, which gives it an aged and distressed appearance.
