Moroccan Carpet N11565 15'0" × 21'6" $39,000
Although presently made, this first-rate rug builds on the ancient and refined tradition of rug making. To the surprise of many, its minimalistic pattern was not created by a modern artist. Instead, it was drawn from the genuine Moroccan tribe, in particular from Beni Ourain people. A group of tribal carpets bearing the name of Beni Ourains was discovered by the mid-20th century designers and hailed as a miracle which fits perfectly into the Modernist aesthetics.
This trend continues uninterrupted as those simple yet ingenious Moroccan berber rugs beautifully correspond with both classic and contemporary interiors and are appreciated today more than ever. The entire field of this tasteful composition is occupied by a bit lax pattern of rhombuses with four tiny diamonds within each of them. Such arrangement is deeply connected with the Oriental symbolism where a diamond stands for the protection against the Evil Eye.
The nonchalant execution is absolutely intentional – according to nomadic beliefs nothing can be perfect, except for God. In terms of the color palette this Beni Ourain-inspired rug delver modern also stays true to its archetype. There are just two hues, off-white and pale grey, which provide the timeless appeal and upmost elegance. Hand-made of the finest wool, the rug amazes with soft texture and top quality which will satisfy its owners for generations.
