Wright Auction: Mid Century Vintage Rugs More Popular Than Ever Before
Doris Leslie Blau

Last week’s auction at Wright in Chicago was a resounding success, with just under a million dollar’s worth of vintage rugs and carpets sold. Swedish flat weave and Moroccan rugs captured the most attention at the event.

Many pieces sold far in excess of their estimates. Not to worry if you missed it though, we have a deep catalog of authentic modernist rugs available in our collection.

Here’s a look at the auction results, alongside similar pieces you can find in our vintage rug collection.
