Sophisticated African Retro Rug Type / Country of Origin: India Circa Date: Modern / New – Mid century modern is making a comeback among modern designers who are looking to give it an updated look. This African Retro carpet is made from wool and natural viscose fiber, but the design has an interesting story to tell. The design reflects a more ancient tradition and adds an eclectic and global feel to the room.
In the mid-20th century, tribal and primitive patterns were popular, often finding themselves contrasted against modern, streamlined designs. Many abstract artists of the time tried to imitate and geometric yet organic lines of primitive cultures. This design is borrowed from a traditional African weaving style known as Kuba cloth. The designs were created by the women of the Democratic Republic of Congo and often represented the world around them.
Kuba cloth designs were the inspiration for mid-20th century carpet designers, and they have now found their way into modern design trends. This modern carpet is based on an African retro design, but it fits perfectly well into today’s trends. Designers are using neutral, geometric rugs to anchor the room design. These rugs create the perfect look for a mid century retro look or a Boho chic space.
The gorgeous browns of this rug, woven in India, are perfect for a room with neutrals. It has a mid century retro feel and is the perfect addition to a vintage-inspired room. It would look at home with contemporary furniture or in a more nature-inspired setting. It is geometric, but it still has a distinctive tribal character that would also make it fit into a Boho chic design, too. This is a versatile piece that creates a soft yet modern look within the space. Color and patterns are no longer for only walls and furniture. This rug will serve as the perfect inspiration for a range of contemporary styles.
