Size: 8'8" × 18'2" (259 × 554 cm). This antique Arts and Crafts rug. Is a fascinating study in minimalism.Consists of a clean field of light beige, with corner brackets outlined in dark beige or brown and featuring within them stylized floral and leaf designs; rosebuds appear in white, leaves in darker beige. The main border is a simple rectangular perimeter in a brown color complementing the color scheme of the all-over design. The stark simplicity of the vintage carpet. Is emblematic of early 20th century minimalism; while the empty field suggests expanse and lightness, the corner bracket designs are a practical and reductionist take on nature.
