Breathtaking Geometric Diamond Pattern Black and Cream Moroccan Beni Ourain Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – The soft, neutral palette of this room sized mid-20th century vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain carpet is versatile enough to complement any modern decor scheme from traditional to modern Scandinavian, industrial, or any modern eco friendly interior design. The geometric based diamond designs of these Moroccan rugs became a favorite choice for mid 20th century designers who wanted to offset the harsh lines of contemporary designs. The imprecisely executed diamond patterns that were popular in these rugs allowed them to be easily incorporated into geometric designs, yet lending an organic quality to them as well. Modern designers still see these attributes as an excellent reason to include them as a design staple.

This cream Moroccan Beni Ourain rug incorporates charcoal clack colored lines on a light cream background using the diamond shapes to create the theme of the vintage mid century modern rug. Motifs and design symbols were incorporated into this beautiful rug from Morocco as a seemingly random design choice by the weaver. However, if one understands the history of the vintage mid century modern rugs, many times they were used to tell tribal myths or to tell a personal or community story for a people that lacked language for thousands of years. Each choice made by the rug weaver was deliberate even though it may not appear so at first glance.

The neutral color palette of this black and cream Moroccan Beni Ourain rug and its soft roughly geometric design would make an excellent addition to any room that needs to have lines softened. It could be used in a neutral color palette interior, or to tone down a brighter one. This is a magnificent rug could be used to achieve many different contemporary interior design goals, much in the same way as mid-20th century designers used these beautiful pieces of tribal artwork.
