Vintage Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century – Tightly spaced checkers, loosely grouped dots and stippled accents arranged in alternating and parallel repeats decorate the soft downy white field. Careful repeats create a series of exceptionally well organized patterns arranged in a fairly constrained yet pleasantly varied composition. Narrow stripes and wide bands comprised of contrasting elements maximize the restrained raw umber and ivory color scheme. More constrained than many Moroccan rugs in style and color, this sophisticated piece represents so many elements prized by designers and collectors. This outstanding rug epitomizes the archetypal Moroccan visage that has enjoyed immense popularity in classically modern mid-century interiors.
