Beautiful Blue Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Modern – This magnificent modern contemporary area rug draws its inspiration from the mid-20th century Moroccan rugs that became an iconic part of interior design. Mid century modern designers were drawn to these vintage rugs for their ability to transform the room and soften the harsh lines and angles created by furniture styles of the time. They used them to give the room a primitive quality and to add texture to hard surfaces throughout space.
Today, we still love these primitive, tribal rug designs, and they are gaining prominence in popular media. The designer of this carpet drew inspiration from the iconic mid century modern rugs, only giving them a fresh update that makes them perfect for contemporary design trends. The tribal design of this modern Moroccan style rug would make it perfect for a Boho chic design room, or to soften a room with modern furniture that has plenty of space underneath.
Merging different style trends is becoming an important design trend that allows you to create a space that expresses your unique personality. Adding a piece that is unique to a space of otherwise matched pieces gives it a focal point, and adds interest. Blues are now considered a neutral, and you often find them among colors such as creamy mushroom, ivory, and a range of grays.
Designers know that they can count on blue to bring a cozy feeling to the space, regardless of whether it is an urban uptown apartment or a country estate. This is a room-sized rug that is larger than the original vintage pieces that inspired it. This allows it to work well with open plan spaces and contemporary architectural styles.
Whether your style is streamlined and modern, or you prefer the softer, nature-inspired designs that bring a feeling of being outside into the indoors, this Afghan rug is the perfect piece to complete the look and bring it together for a composed and well-curated look. It adds an artistic touch to create a style that is all your own.
