Vintage Moroccan Beni Ourain Carpet, Origin: Morocco, Mid-20th Century – Here is an exciting and dynamic vintage carpet – a mid-century Moroccan rug, woven in the perennially popular Beni Ourain rug style. Characterized by the typical Beni Ourain ivory field, this particular carpet is both expressive of what are largely representative Beni Ourain aesthetic preferences, but is also a unique piece with a distinct voice. The generous amount of line work that runs throughout the carpet imbues it both with structure and character, rigidity and flexibility – and the eccentric arrangement of this line work creates an impression of abstraction, making this an especially complex rug. Small tribal details appear at irregular intervals in the negative space of the ivory field, adding further depth to the rug. Most striking about this rug, however, is its fascinating incorporation of shades of purple, which appear in subtle horizontal bands, magnificently contrasting with the ivory and dark brown. Unique and exciting, emboldened by purple detail work, this vintage Moroccan carpet is a delightful and expressive composition.
