Beautiful Light Blue Modern Moroccan Style Afghan Rug / Country of Origin: Afghanistan/ Circa Date: Modern – Classic blue is the color of the year, and interior decorators are using it to bring life to neutral rooms and to add a touch of nature to the space. The primitive designs of the Beni Ourain rugs of Morocco have inspired decorators for many decades. Their vintage rugs became iconic pieces that were found throughout the interiors of mid-century modern design.
These primitive masterpieces were the perfect accompaniment to functional furniture and simple lines. Now, we love them for many of the same reasons, and they are the perfect contrast to Swedish Modern furniture with clean lines, or to complement more trendy, curvy furniture styles that have recently become popular.
This modern contemporary rug allows you to add a geometric element to the design that has softer lines and a more natural, organic feel. The ocean blues on this Afghan rug would make it perfect for a coastal room, or for one that reflects the colors of the earth and Sky throughout the space. The neutral grays throughout the piece also make it perfect for adding color to a neutral room.
Today’s designs use layering to create interest and texture. This contemporary inspired Moroccan rug layers neutrals and blues throughout the background with white motifs. This gives it an almost faded denim look that would be perfect for East Coast or West Coast design styles. It brings a casual feel to the room, which makes it perfect for updating a classic style.
Unlike the original vintage Moroccan rugs, this one is in a larger size that is perfect for defining modern spaces. This modern Moroccan rug brings in elements of the past in a way that adds character to the room. It is soft and composed for a look that is the perfect match for many contemporary design styles. This Moroccan inspired modern rug is poised to become a classic that is the perfect touch for a range of design styles.
