Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-Twentieth Century – True to the Moroccan spirit of design, this majestic vintage mid-century carpet showcases a dazzling melange of vivid ultramarine blues that have an electric intensity. These strong, cool blue hues are paired with heather grays and opposing guava pink accents. Heavy veils of shocking blue produce a lively abrash that has an arresting presence. Shocks of ivory and ashen gray pile dilute the strong blue hues and give the variable monochrome tones an attractive organic appearance. Checkered zigzags rendered in guava pink book-end the spectacularly colored field while creating a stable triad of cool blue, warm pink and ashen neutrals. Mottled roan textures and variable colors produce a tremendous result that is vivid yet understated and has the vivacious qualities and subtle hand-drawn variations that make these regional creations irresistible design pieces.
