Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-20th Century – This sophisticated vintage rug from Morocco captures the exuberant, free style of weavers from the Atlas Mountains. Unhindered by rules and restraints, this free-flowing design inadvertently conforms to minimalist design principles. Reminiscent of the plush Moroccan carpets selected by Mies van der Rohe and influential designers at the time, this sophisticated pile carpet embodies the 20th century zeitgeist. Unlike mass-produced designs, these unique carpets have an individual style and personality reflective of Moroccan culture, smaller tribal groups and individual weavers. This expressive reticulated latticework pattern has a minimalist aesthetic blended with rustic tribal details and imperfections that make the net-like design truly beautiful. Flowing lines, abrupt curves and unexpected variations give this magnificent 20th century Moroccan rug an alluring abstract style that is as sophisticated as any modern interior.
