Shop The Trend: Moroccan Rugs

Moroccan rugs have reached Australian shores, with a variety of colours and styles available to suit your style.

The gorgeous handmade items are defined by the beautiful craftsmanship and fascinating patterns that make them a real statement floor covering.

Shop our favourite Moroccan-style rugs for all budgets:

"I like mixing these rugs with other textural elements, such as worn leather, linens and wool to create a really tactile and inviting space.," Danielle McEwan from Tigmi Trading explained.

"The beauty of Moroccan rugs was discovered by the likes of modernist designers and architects including, Le Corbusier, Alvar Aalto and Frank Lloyd Wright who often used Beni Ourains in their work."

Beni Ourain rug specialist, Ash Jamshidi, confirms Moroccan rugs are indeed popular in Europe, but Australia has finally caught onto the trend.

Part of the appeal, he explains, is thanks to the ability to dress these rugs up or down.

"The classic black and white colouring [of Beni Ourain rugs] works brilliantly in modern décors and sits well with virtually any colour furniture," he told LifeStyle. "The long hair wool pile also adds texture and a soft warm layer to hard surfaces."

Yet, for those keen for more colour, earthy Kilims or muted but bold Azilal Moroccan rugs offer some more character to a space, without overpowering the room.
