Beautiful Cream Tribal Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug, Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Modern – This modern area rug combines both classic and modern elements in a way that is perfect for contemporary spaces. The Moroccan rugs have a way of allowing you to combine vintage and modern elements for a unified style that expresses your unique personality. This modern Moroccan design rug draws its inspiration from the vintage pieces of the 1950s, but the artist gave it a fresh and updated look by using modern colors and softening the pattern.
The bold, geometric shapes of the vintage area rugs from Morocco have inspired interior designers for many decades. This Moroccan Beni Ourain design rug uses a softened version of them that has an aged appearance. The natural gray and cream background make this rug perfect for a layered carpet look or for creating an update that is modern and fresh.
Creating an authentic Moroccan-style room is all about texture. This concept also found its way into Bohemian interiors where Moroccan-style rugs allow you to combine different elements to create a space that is warm and inviting. Adding a few Moroccan-styled pieces, such as a woven basket or Moroccan-style pillows, will create a global, worldly ambiance in your home.
One of the reasons why people love Moroccan rugs is their soft and supple feel under your feet. Even though this is a modern piece, the artist recreated the long pile and soft texture of vintage Moroccan Berber area rugs by using rows of hand-knotting separated by rows of flatweave. This gives the modern Moroccan design rug a shaggy, natural appearance that is perfect for adding texture to the room design.
The long pile adds to the nature-inspired feel of the Afghan rug, making it perfect for eco-chic, Nordic, and contemporary spaces. This is the perfect piece for the bedroom, living room, entranceway, game room, or any other room of your home. It is a larger rug that would also be perfect for an open-plan space and for creating an intimate area for conversation. The versatility of this rug makes it the perfect piece for many modern styles where it will add depth and warmth to the design.
