Mid-Century Modern is a style that spans several decades and whose iconic aesthetic remains relevant even in this time. True period carpets differ greatly from those of today which take retrospective influence from the form, yet all remain undeniably modern in context. This is the enduring power, the glory, of “Modern Love.”
