Vintage Berber Moroccan Area Rug 47106
Built on tribal traditions dating back thousands of years, this sophisticated vintage rug from Morocco depicts a graphic latticework pattern embellished with geometric symbols and tribal motifs. Bold linear devices with reciprocating legs that have an arthropodan appearance traverse the field creating a strong latticework trellis that shelters a series of checkered quincunx grids, compound axe-head figures and rectilinear mazes that are repeated across adjacent tiles. Towering edge pieces embellished with latticework chains, people and cryptic tribal decorations create a border-like frame that fortifies the tiled composition while maintaining the minimalist style. These quirky, highly geometric decorations complement the mid-century aesthetic perfectly as do the plush ivory pile and deep kohl black decorations, which are neutral, wonderfully versatile and capable of flattering a wide range of interior styles from rustic and retro to modern or traditional.
