Vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan Rug, Country of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid-20th Century – This is a quintessential vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain rug, from the mid 20th century. This Beni Ourain rug from Morocco embodies the gestalt and simplicity of vintage rugs by Berber weavers in the highlands of the Atlas Mountains. Inadvertently following the principle of “less is more,” this chic Moroccan carpet features a continuous latticework pattern assembled from an endless series of bilinear zigzag stripes. These lozenges are a universal symbol and one of the perfect tessellating shapes seen in patterns repeated in buildings, floor tiles and traditional Moroccan tattoos worn by weavers who created these beloved works of modern art. This Moroccan rug has a decidedly contemporary approach to design that relies on the spontaneous beauty of natural materials, the textures, the nap of the plush pile and organic designs. All of these traits are prized by carpet lovers and design lovers alike.
