Beautiful Gallery Size Vintage Berber Moroccan Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Moroccan Rugs, Circa Date: 3rd Quarter Of The 20th Century – The fascinating vintage Berber tribal rug from the mid-20th century looks as if it would be perfectly at home in a contemporary abstract art gallery. However, it is a piece that has centuries of tradition behind the techniques used to create it and its artistic design. This piece is an unusual design for a Moroccan tribal rug.
Moroccan rugs have been woven by the nomadic tribes who lived a rugged life in and around the Atlas Mountain range. Their patterns were often inspired by those that were handed down through oral traditions that go back many centuries. Sometimes, the pattern reflects the natural world around them. Perhaps this one is reminiscent of cracks in limestone or aged, weathered, tree bark.
The design of this rug brings an element of the natural world into the space. This is one of the key reasons why these rugs found their way into mid century modern interior design. They serve as a point of contrast between the built world and the natural one. Today, these rugs can be used much in the same way to add a primitive, organic element to a contemporary interior design.
This is an expressive piece that appears to be completely free form, as if the artist began weaving without a plan, allowing the pattern to emerge on its own. This rug would be the perfect piece for an ultra-modern room because the design looks as if it were created recently to complement today’s style trends. It would also add an element of authenticity to a space that features vintage furniture. It is the perfect foundation for a room with retro furniture that has open space underneath to show it off.
This vintage rug would also fit perfectly in the more recent design trend that adds a touch of vibrant color to a neutral or white room. This rug is the perfect complement to a room that is all black and white, or that has solid cream walls. It has a light and energetic feel that sparks the creative spirit and allows you to express your unique design style.
