A Captivating Vintage Geometric Grid Design Moroccan Berber Rug , Country Of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid-Century – This magnificent vintage Moroccan rug has a classical mid-century style that is in tune with the aesthetic and zeitgeist of the era when stylish and functional items were increasingly in demand. Shaggy tufts of ivory pile create a luxurious neutral ground that is crossed by a rectilinear graph of intersecting lines with right-angle corners and confetti-stripe accents.
This single-minded design has a precise minimalist style that combines achromatic and high-chroma accents. Strong walnut-tone lines are offset by the sumptuous ivory ground and tufts of pile that luxuriously extend over the linear designs and blur their crisp form. The continuity of the regular repeating pattern is balanced by clear cobalt blues, earth tones and subtle accents. Colorful confetti-stripe accents divide the intricately patterned field into regular portions that minimize the expansive length of the grand composition.
A vintage Moroccan rug is always an excellent addition to a contemporary interior design. They have been popular since the mid 20th century and have been coveted for their more simplistic abstract design elements and more primitive and tribal appeal. The design elements in the vintage Moroccan rugs are often informal and appear to be random to the modern eye. This gives the rugs from Morocco an artistic quality that modern designers try to mimic, but often failed to achieve the primitive quality of true vintage Moroccan Berber carpets.
These magnificent vintage rugs are known for their soft plush shag pile feel and lasting quality. The weavers proudly created these works of art that were destined to become family heirlooms in years to come.
The hand drawn quality of this magnificent vintage rug from Morocco is what gives it a special appeal for both the seasoned art collector and anyone who appreciates the craftsmanship that continues to go into these area rugs. This is an excellent mid-century modern example that will look beautiful in any home or office that requires a piece with an organic, earthy feel, and primitive, abstract quality.
