Beautiful Geometric Room Size Ivory Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug / Country of Origin: Afghanistan, Circa Date: Modern – This modern geometric room size rug is the perfect piece for inspiring a room design that combines traditional elements with contemporary style trends. This modern rug was created in Afghanistan and draws its inspiration from the designs found in mid century modern rugs from Morocco.
These traditional rugs were created by the Beni Ourain tribes of the Atlas Mountains and have inspired designers since the middle part of the last century. Today, we are still enamored by these primitive designs and the ancient traditions that they embody. Nazmiyal’s collection of modern Moroccan rugs brings a fresh, updated look to this traditional artistic concept.
The bold pattern on this room size Moroccan rug was inspired by a traditional design found on vintage rugs, but the artist chose to emphasize several elements that give it an updated, contemporary feel. The bold lines are widened to give it a more graphic look that is ultra-modern and clean. The artist also emphasized another characteristic of the vintage pieces called “abrash”. This refers to inconsistencies in the dyeing process that result in color variations in the background and lines of the piece.
This variation in the colors of the rug within the lines and background give it a more primitive feel and emphasize the connection between the ancient and modern elements. The ivory color of the rug is light and airy. The bold lines and the large-scale pattern is perfect for defining a multi functional space in a modern, open architectural design.
This piece would look spectacular in a room with Italian marble, or perhaps mixed black and white patterns. The modern Afghan rug is bold and will add a fresh and invigorating feel to any modern interior. The clean lines of the design contrast with hints of the human elements, adding a primitive artistic quality to the piece. This allows it to retain its elegance and refinement, but in a way the is still relaxed and inviting. This modern area rug strikes the perfect balance between formality and a feeling that is casual and cozy at the same time.
