Magnificent Vintage Plush Red Moroccan Berber Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – Bold, beautiful, saturated red greets you with this unique vintage rug from Morocco. The vintage Berber carpets hold a special place in the history of American and European interior design. Each of the mid century Moroccan rugs is unique and were valued for their primitive artistic folk art quality and the characteristics. They were known for their plush pile and luxurious feel. These qualities continue to make these vintage rugs a prized part of any collection.

The design of this plush red Moroccan Berber rug features a simple border that is used to define the space. It has simple Berber tattoo symbols that are seemingly scattered randomly across the brilliant red background. The symbols are created using rich browns and lighter color shades in a way that makes them stand out against the red background.

This magnificent rich red carpet is even more special when you realize that the symbols tell the story of the weaver, or something about the weaver’s life. They are symbolic of special life events and circumstances. Regardless of their meaning, they provide interest and serve as focal points in the design pattern of the rug. The sparse and open nature of the design allows the viewer to focus on and contemplate each symbol on its own and highlights the magnificent rich red color background.

This vintage shag rug would make an excellent addition to many modern decor schemes. For instance, it would be excellent in a design that calls for a primitive or tribal theme. It would also serve well in modern Scandinavian or minimalist design. Regardless of where you choose to place this exciting plush red Moroccan Berber rug in your home or office, it is sure to make a bold statement for many years to come.
