Ivory Vintage Moroccan Rug, Origin: Morocco, Circa: Mid-20th Century – Here is a beautifully composed vintage carpet – a mid-century rug from Morocco, woven in height of the Beni Ourain style. Long admired for their uniquely minimalist designs, the Beni Ourain have left an outsized mark on the world of mid-century carpets. In general, a typical Beni Ourain carpet will feature a simple ivory field, and a crisscrossing of either dark brown or black detail lines. This pairing creates a dynamic contrast, and, while simple, represents sufficient detail to create a genuinely appealing carpet. This particular example is no exception to this rule, and is in many ways a beautifully representative work. The ivory filed in all its glory is on full display, and the intricate, highly irregular crisscrossing of dark lines represents the finest trends in Beni Ourain design. The eccentricity of this line work creates an abstract effect, that makes the carpet inherently abstract and inviting.
