Gorgeous Berber Design Beige Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Modern – This gorgeous, modern Moroccan Berber-style rug was inspired by the classic, tribal designs of the vintage rugs of the Beni Ourain tribes of Morocco. These vintage Moroccan rugs were a popular feature in architecture and the interior designs of the mid-20th century. Designers loved them for their folk art, primitive feel. They served as a contrast to the simple lines and shapes of furniture, such as Eames and Danish Modern design. Now, we love these magnificent area rugs for many of the same reasons, only they are finding their way into an even wider range of modern style trends from Eco-chic to ultramodern.
During the mid-20th century furniture that featured open spaces underneath expanded the space within the room that designers could use as their canvas. They were no longer restricted to the walls and center of the floor space. They could create color and pattern contrasts that defined functional areas of the room, such as for dining, conversation, or gathering around the television. Now, interior designers are once again turning to vintage as well as modern rugs to form the centerpiece of the design. They add color, texture, and a focal point to the space.
This modern Moroccan design rug features graphic elements that create transition and a contrast between the various elements of the design. This creates a sense of structure and balance in a room that blends stylistically different elements. The design uses changes in scale, direction, and pattern elements to give the rug rhythm and a formal organizational structure. This allows the rug to fit perfectly into a traditional room design, or areas, such as a formal dining room.
Seldom were the original vintage rugs more than eight feet across. This rug is made on a scale that is more suitable to the proportions of modern architectural features. This rug creates a sense of scale in the room. It is a piece that could be used to bridge different stylistic elements within the space or to blend vintage and modern elements into a cohesive design.
The soft blues and gentle beige background of the rug will give the space a tranquil and calm feeling. This is a gorgeous piece that draws on vintage rug design elements and transforms them into a piece that is perfectly suited for modern interiors. The overall size of the rug and scale of the design make it the perfect fit for an open-plan home or office space.
