I wonder if this is a Storm Pattern rug; we have 2. That was my first thought. We have a Teec Nos Pos rug and they seem much busier. The middle here isn’t a square, but it has a center with four lightening bolts going out towards the corners. The corners not being boxes isn’t typical, but we were told by the gentleman at Teec Nos Pos Trading Post, that individual designs can vary. Our Storm Patterns are quite a bit different from each other, but have the four directional design.
I looked in my books and nothing jumped out as a definite match. I don’t know about it being a Storm Pattern. They seem busier too. The continuous border around the factory rug is throwing me off, as is the blue color. I’m still thinking Klagetoh, but I’m just not sure. It kind of reminds me of this Klagetoh rug…
Those are beautiful paintings. I could see having them in an office space, but they are right by where the pallets are being stacked, that’s nuts. Wonder what the owner’s house looks like! One of the Culvers Restaurants near us used to have their walls full of WPA posters which made me happy, but that’s nothing like this!
I also read on Garlands site that Storm Patterns originated at the Crystal Trading Post. And after looking at all those I think I’m leaning towards Teec Nos Pos also, especially since I saw the one that had the four zigzag directions. Can’t wait to hear what it is!
J B Moore’s rugs, in his catalog (originating at his Crystal post), are also often termed Crystal rugs, even those with the Storm Pattern or Teec patterns. When I mentioned Crystal earlier, that’s what I was thinking about.
