Beautiful Cream Modern Moroccan Style Runner Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan made rugs, Circa Date: Modern – Interior designers are once again turning to the past to find inspiration for creating pieces that are fresh and modern. This modern area rug was inspired by the creations of the Moroccan Berber rug weavers that were popular in the mid-20th century. The Moroccan area rugs were popular for their simple, primitive appeal and the ability to bring an organic element into rooms that featured hard, minimalist lines and simple, geometric shapes. They soften the lines of streamlined mid century modern designs. Today, home decorators are using them in a similar manner in contemporary spaces.
One of the features that made the area rugs from Morocco so popular was their ability to invoke a feeling of being out in nature, and the natural world. They achieved this through the simplicity of their designs and the colors that were used. More recently, color palettes that reflect the natural world have become a key element in modern styles. They are used in styles that range from traditional to ultramodern. Natural colors evoke a sense of calm and peace, much like a walk in nature will do.
The beautiful browns, beige, and light sky blues reflect the natural world and add the feeling of these elements to the space. This runner rug is long and narrow, which makes it perfect for a modern, narrow kitchen with natural accents in bamboo and natural woods throughout the space.
The vertical lines emphasize the length of the runner rug and will make the space appear to be longer, but they are spaced in such a way that they also add width and make this area appear to be wider. The emphasis of the horizontal elements and the use of the colors helps to balance out the vertical lines up the modern Moroccan design rug and add depth to the design. This balanced feel would also make the contemporary Afghan rug the perfect rug for your entryway foyer, or a wider hallway.
