Vintage Beni Ourain Moroccan Rug, Country Of Origin: Morocco, Circa Date: Mid-20th Century – This magnificent achromatic mid-century Moroccan vintage rug showcases an archetypal Berber latticework pattern arranged in a striking elongated format that is dotted with ancient protection symbols and duality figures representative of two central themes in Moroccan designs. Checkered eye symbols and archaic glyphs adorn the latticework figures in the lower section of the field, while the remainder of the composition focuses on the strong pointillist latticework grid, which highlights the sumptuous ecru ground beautifully. This classical pattern is inherently versatile and modern and is arranged to fill the elongated field beautifully. These expansive designs provide endless interest in a minimalist package, and the superb elongated format is indispensable in design applications for filling those narrow areas around prominent furnishings or making a dramatic statement as the star of a classically modern interior.
