Vintage Ivory and Brown Colored Vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan Rug, Country Of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid-20th Century – Here is an exemplary and charmingly composed vintage rug – a mid-twentieth century piece, characterized by a representative Moroccan composition, including a beautiful ivory field and tantalizing detail work, rendered in the traditional shade of dark brown. Mid-century Beni Ourain rugs such as this are widely sought after and valued by designers for their great versatility, cultural authenticity, and unique mid-century sensibilities. The ivory of the field is a rich tone, both simple and complex at the same time. This shade of ivory is also beautifully suited to carrying detail work, and the dark brown that makes up the detail lines in this fine piece shows up magnificently. Intriguingly, this rug is effectively bifurcated into two independent portions, each of which boasts a complex jumbling of lines. Small detail elements present in each half disallow for any symmetry, with the result complex and inviting. Effectively rendered into two patterns, this intriguing Moroccan rug is both impeccably composed and stimulating.
