Vintage Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid 20th Century — This Moroccan rug makes wonderful use of the colors and patterns that distinguished Moroccan trade during a large part of the middle of the 20th century. The patches of brown and red fabrics that intermingle with the linear elements infuse the piece with energy and balance that permeates the overall design. However, the visual interest is further increased as the small additions of yellow and pastel blues slowly become incorporated into the patterning. The apparent movement and excitement of the linear elements are also increased by seemingly random areas where the black lines connect to form diamonds. Still, others are left unconnected, drawing in the eye for further exploration and enjoyment as you take in the beauty of this fashionable and elegant rug.
