Moroccan Rug, Morocco, Mid-Twentieth Century – The rugs of the Beni Ourain people of Morocco have a playful, childlike quality that makes them a delightful addition to any room. This rug uses saturated, intense colors to create a design that is organic, and that has a natural flow. The colors are reminiscent of colorful zebra stripe, or perhaps dripping paint. The most fascinating feature of this piece is that it looks like a modern abstract, but it was created in the mid-20th century by a people that has a rug-making tradition that goes back centuries.
This intense, colorful design was created by a nomadic people who make these rugs for utilitarian purposes. They were originally created for use as a warm floor covering or as tent walls or roofs. However, their utilitarian nature does not detract from their beauty as a work of art, as you can see from this piece.
Another element of the rugs of the Beni Ourain that makes them stand out is their long pile. They add texture and an element of coziness to the interior space. The brilliant colors of this rug would be the perfect addition to a colorful Boho chic or eclectic space.
Another contemporary trend is using pieces that add a splash of color to a neutral palette. This rug adds color, but it also does it in a way that is natural and organic. The natural design of the rug looks contemporary, and it would be the perfect piece in a color-blocked room, or as a base for furniture that features open space underneath.
This rug sparks the imagination and creates the perfect beginning for a room that is modern and fresh. The colors and designs are cheerful and have a light and airy feel. It is also an unusual design that is not typically found among Moroccan rugs. It looks like a modern abstract, but it is backed by centuries of an ancient tradition. It is perfect for adding an element of surprise to the room.
