Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Contemporary – Here is a beautifully woven contemporary rug – a Moroccan wool pile carpet, woven in the style of the celebrated Beni Ourain tribes people of Morocco’s Atlas Mountain region. Prized by homeowners and designers across the world for their impressive versatility, carpets woven in this styleare notable for a simple pairing of broad ivory fields with unobtrusive detail work, generally rendered in the form of crisscrossing dark brown lines. This particular example is a wonderful contemporary manifestation of this trend, boasting each of these qualities in a subdued and dignified manner. An eccentric pattern of intersecting lines runs throughout the ivory field of this carpet, simultaneously suggesting structure and abstraction. This abstraction is an important characteristic of mid-century modern Moroccan carpets in general; a great deal of their current popularity is a result of their unique compositions, which are more wont to incorporate abstract and minimalist design aesthetics than many other rugs that were produced contemporaneously. A beautifully woven Moroccan, this contemporary rug is an exciting example.
