Vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is a beautiful and representative vintage carpet – a mid-century Moroccan rug that exhibits many of the qualities and characteristics considered most desirable of the style. Boasting a straightforward, minimalistic composition, this vintage Moroccan rug exemplifies the tendency of the Beni Ourain tribes people to weave carpets with an enduring beauty that suit almost any interior space. Characterized by the bold ivory tone that makes up almost the entire composition, this vintage carpet also features a series of subtle detail elements that contrast with the ivory and give the piece a true sense of depth. Running down the center are large rectangular figures, woven deep into the pile with a dark brown. On either side of this central detail is a series of triangular figures, stacked nearly, suggesting a line of arrows that direct the eye upward. A beautifully composed vintage rug, this mid-century Moroccan carpet is an excellent example of the minimalist Beni Ourain style.
