This lively midcentury Moroccan rug features a beautifully varied compartmental pattern that epitomizes the unbridled artistry that makes Moroccan rugs so individual and alluring. The plush ivory field is broken into compartments by a striking series of checkerboard panels that continue around the periphery of the field where they create formal borders.
Jason Nazmiyal, owner of the Manhattan-based rug company that bears his name, has been buying and selling antique and vintage rugs for three decades. His goal is not merely to find and offer the finest handcrafted rugs—worthy though that goal is—but also to share his knowledge of and passion for the art form. His collection, which ranges from Moroccan runners to Swedish flat-weaves to antique Oushaks, shows that he continues to achieve both ambitions.
