Moroccan Inspired Rug N12069 12'2" × 13'8" $25,000

This exceptional modern rug, although presently made, carries a design that was developed centuries ago by nomadic tribes wandering the deserts of Morocco. It is modeled on the famed Beni Ourains – shaggy tribal rugs which were “discovered” by mid-20th century modernists and have been an indispensable feature of the most fashionable interiors around the world ever since.

The custom rug before your eyes is a variation on the most classic canon of Beni Ourains. Its off-white field bears a slightly irregular pattern of geometric motifs which are not ‘drawn’ but rendered by leaving some parts of the pile out (high&low pile). It is worth mentioning that the imperfections of the design are intentional – they are connected to tribal beliefs that nothing in the earthly life can be perfect and aim at expressing humility towards the force majeure.

The contemporary rug was made in complete accordance with traditional craft. Its cushy pile was carefully hand-knotted of top-notch wool by a skilled artisan. Due to such execution, the rug is durable, resilient and unique. Under the condition of proper maintenance, it will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear, bringing in its warmth and a pinch of Oriental magic.
