5277 22 rr329 Moroccan Atlas Rug 9'10" x 13'9"
This exceptional modern Moroccan rug, although presently made, carries a design that was developed centuries ago by the nomadic tribes wandering the deserts of Morocco. It is modeled on the famed Beni Ourains – shaggy tribal rugs which were highly acclaimed by the mid-20th century modernists and have been an indispensable element of the most fashionable interiors around the world ever since.
The main field of the modern Moroccan rug boasts the iconic design of slightly lax diamonds which are believed to protect against the Evil Eye. Traditionally, Beni Ourains have black motifs and off-white field. Here we have a modern twist – the irregular grid is rendered in off-white against the blue background. This serene composition is finished with a fringe that contributes to whimsical charm of the rug. Minimalistic and timelessly elegant, this piece will easily match any kind of décor, bringing in joy a bit of a geometric stir.
Moreover, the modern rug was made in accordance with well-established, traditional techniques to ensure its quality. Carefully hand-knotted of the finest, softest wool, it is distinguished by durability and pleasant pile. Provided minimum amount of care, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear.
