Vintage Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Circa: Mid 20th Century – Delightfully modern and abstract, this sleek vintage mid-century modern rug, by one of the Beni Ourain Berber tribes, from Morocco features an ever-evolving checkerboard pattern rendered in a crisp combination of eggshell white and walnut brown. As the pattern completes a magnificent metamorphosis from positive to negative, the wonky checkerboard pattern transitions into a series of staggered keystones that are followed by floating color blocks and cruciform motifs. Charming sapphire blue flecks and cerise monoliths dot the isolated checkers mirroring the negative ivory markers that appear in each walnut brown block. Abstract color flecks are incorporated in the design of this vintage Moroccan rug, with increasing regularity as the pattern completes its transition and further highlights the plush ivory background in a creative, inventive and typically Moroccan fashion.
