The Moroccan rugs are most famous for their dynamic color designs and bold geometric patterns. Today, the Moroccan rug is one the industry’s hottest design trend. Each piece is a sliver of history, a slice of true folk art, and is an heirloom that may be passed down for generations.
Though their earliest existence only dates back to the mid-nineteenth century, these pieces have withstood the test of time and have earned their social status with the ever-changing interior design world.
These beauties are the birth-child of a cross between central and western Turkish rugs during the mid 1800’s. Notoriously distinct for their geometric designs, the Moroccan rug features bold designs that differ from traditional traditional Persian rugs adding an element of timelessness.
Designs remind me of a precursor to the designs stemmed from the Bauhaus movement, which also featured strong geometry and popping color palettes. These versatile bad boys are great statement pieces that will withstand the test of time regardless of changing trends in the design field.
The Moroccan rugs have become “the rug of choice” for many interior designers as well as private consumers. They don’t have a long history but are most notable for their dynamic colorful modernist designs as well as for their strong sense of geometric structure (and abstract designs). None so far have been dated to before the mid nineteenth century, when their production began as an adaptation of central and western Turkish rugs, whose repertoire was followed closely by the weavers in Morocco.
The Moroccan rugs are, nevertheless, distinctive in their coloration and in the more block-like geometry of their composition.
