During the middle part of the 20th century, designers fell in love with primitive, Moroccan rugs. They were the perfect contrast to the hard lines and simple, geometric shapes that dominated architectural and furniture designs of the time. These vintage rugs often have a longer pile and add a texture that had a softening effect in minimalist spaces. Today, we love them for many of the same reasons, and they continue to be a beloved staple in our homes.
If your style is retro or Mid-century modern inspired, this piece will add authenticity to the space. If you consider yourself to be more on the Boho-chic side of the spectrum, the tribal flavor of this vintage runner rug will be the perfect starting point for an inspired design. The designs of the Berber tribes of Morocco tell and story and have special meaning for those who know how to interpret them. They were first designed for utilitarian purposes for warmth and to create a soft surface on the ground. They are durable, and they continue to add warmth and texture to our interior spaces.
