A Magnificent Vintage Room Size Moroccan Beni Ourain Area Rug, Country of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid 20th Century — Vintage Moroccan rugs are renown for their subtle marks of beauty and unique approach towards patterning and texture. This example of craftsmanship and artistry is apparent in the most gentle of ways in this elegant piece. Perhaps the most distinctive feature is the edging of dark browns that break up the surface and background that is established by the cream weaving that facilitates the movement of the rest of the pattern. There is a dynamic quality in the approach taken by the designer that allows the connecting diamonds to ebb and flow across the surface of the rug as you approach the center. Residing here, a mixture of geometric forms and sparse patterning creates a center of visual interest that is at once both immediate and ephemeral in terms of its grounding and impact. In all, the line work captivates you while the colors and composition facilitate relaxation.
