Breathtaking Diamond Design Ivory Background Shaggy Vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain Rug, Country of Origin / Rug Type: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid – 20th Century – The subtle, tranquil design of this beautiful Moroccan Beni Ourain rug is versatile enough to work within any room’s interior decor. The soft neutral cream colors, and overall ghost like diamond pattern, would be at home in any decor from traditional to modern and anything in between. The soft brown lines, that peek out from underneath the cream colored plush shag rug pile, give it an earthy feel as well as a look of shifting desert sands.
The design of the carpet from Morocco is an all over diamond pattern. The shapes are irregular, giving it an authentic handmade, almost folk art rug quality. The uniqueness of this magnificent Berber carpet is further enhanced by an unevenness in the lines, which makes it look as if an artist painted them by hand using different pressures within the actual stroke. This vintage rug has approximate vertical and horizontal symmetry, but because the diamonds are unevenly spaced, the symmetry is not precise.
Moroccan rugs became popular in the mid 20th century because of their abstract and one of a kind unique approach to design. They fit well into the design sensibilities of the time, and they still hold a special place for their timeless beauty and place in design history.
The design of this shaggy vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain rug appears to extend beyond the area of the rug. This makes the rug appear as if you are only seeing a portion of a larger design. This gorgeous and luxurious rug has an organic and natural quality that would make it perfect for any minimalist or modern Scandinavian contemporary design. However, its simplicity makes it versatile enough or any room in your home or office that needs a subtle touch of serenity.
