Breathtaking Ivory Background Moroccan Rug 4603, Country of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: 21st Century – To the untrained eye, this Moroccan rug may appear to be a work by artist Henri Matisse or work by mid-century Paul Klee, but the history of this vintage rug is much more interesting than that. This shag pile rug is a mid-century Moroccan Berber carpet that was woven with tribal traditions that go back hundreds of years, if not thousands. The lines of the ivory background vintage Moroccan rug appear to wonder and flow together, perhaps giving it the look of age cracks in old plaster.
The design of the rug from Morocco depends on meandering vertical lines that are punctuated by specs of red and turquoise. The abstract rug design pattern lacks symmetry in the horizontal and vertical direction. The placement of the lines would indicate that it is directional, but there is no distinctive top or bottom and it could be placed in either direction.
A thin dark line defines the vertical boundaries of the ivory colored Moroccan rug, with many of the lines appearing to cross and wander into the space surrounding it. The white space of the vintage mid century modern rug from Morocco, is punctuated by dots and dashes which have lost their meaning through the years, but now serve as a point of interest in the design.
This mid century ivory Berber Moroccan rug is an excellent addition to any modern collection. It has modern appeal and works well with minimalist and contemporary designs, but it is more special due to its history and place in the mid-century art world.
Its more organic folk art approach to design make it a totally unique piece. Regardless of how one chooses to incorporate this Moroccan rug within their existing interior decor, it is the kind of piece that will garner much love and appreciation for years to come.
