Fine Beige Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug / Country of Origin: Afghanistan/ Circa Date: Modern – This magnificent work of contemporary textile art for your floor is the culmination of traditions that go back many centuries. The piece is inspired by the Moroccan rugs of the Beni Ourain people who live in the Atlas Mountains. Many of them continue to live a life that is similar to that of their ancient ancestors. They are known for creating beautiful rugs that have inspired the world of interior design for several decades.
The popularity of Moroccan rugs was at its peak in the mid-20th century when designers were drawn to their primitive, geometric shapes and simple designs. They were used to soften the lines of mid century modern rooms with hard surfaces and sharp angles. They provided an earthiness that made the room feel warm and inviting. This is the same reason why they have remained popular over the years and why we still love them today.
Traditional Moroccan rugs were limited in size by the carpet looms that were available to the tribal cultures. This rug collection allows you to have these beautiful designs, only, you can have them on a larger scale that is more suited to modern interiors.
