Morocco is a country located in the Maghreb region of north west Africa. These Moroccan style rugs experienced a growth in popularity in the West with mid-century modern designers – such as Le Corbusier, who paired the thick piled Berber rugs with his sleekly designed furniture. Colors vary from neutral shades to popping hues, with designs ranging from ordered geometric shapes to a more free-form, expressive pattern. Part of the appeal to the modernists was the primitiveness of the carpets. Unlike the traditional antique Persian rugs found in Western interior decoration, there is little elegance about these rugs, yet they fit wonderfully with modernist decor.
House of Haghi stocks several woolly Morrocan rugs, as pictured, as part of our modern rugs collection for customers looking for a handmade rug with a more rustic or bohemian style.
