Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Astoundingly creative and sophisticated, this striking mid-century vintage rug from Morocco displays a phenomenal all over repeating design that exhibits superb pattern-making skills and produces a splendid visual effect. Zigzagging double lines cleverly play off of the neighboring figures, creating a series of staggered lozenges that produce a dazzling honeycomb pattern. This wondrous pattern uses a surprising, unusual reversed color scheme that places ecru linear figures over a dark bistre and walnut brown ground. These stark colors and graphic patterns are paired with mulberry and manila stripes and subtle hash-mark selvages that infuse the composition with color. This extraordinary vintage Moroccan rug relies on ancient motifs and universal design elements that are cleverly arranged to produce a stunning op-art effect ideal for modern and mid-century interiors and a wide range of interior decorating applications.
