This area rug from Afghanistan has a soft and natural feel that is perfect for a neutral or minimalist space. The modern rug was inspired by the designs created by the Berber rug weaving tribes of Morocco. The designs of the Moroccan rugs reflect the natural world surrounding a traditional culture that has been creating beautiful works of art for thousands of years. The artist pays homage to these ancient traditions in this piece that is perfect for modern design trends.

The rugs from Morocco have an organic feel and add simplicity and charm to a contemporary room design. Many of the original pieces featured geometric shapes and bold patterns. The artist kept traces of these elements with the angular shapes and subtle design that appears on one side of the rug.

The design of this soft and neutral inspired modern Moroccan area rug brings elements of nature to the interior space in many ways. The first is through soft brown and gray colors that are reminiscent of the colors found in shifting sands or high sandstone cliff walls. The second is in the asymmetry and design that seems to evolve organically as one moves vertically along the rug.

Cream color modern Moroccan area rug would be an excellent piece for adding a touch of nature to your contemporary space. It is an inspirational piece for adding your favorite pieces of natural sculpture, primitive basketry, and a collection of oversized plants. It would pair well with a set of texture throws or a piece of oversized textile artwork. You could continue with the neutral color theme for a calm and balanced space, or you could add blue or pink for a touch of color. This rug has a tranquil feel and will allow you to create a space where you can relax and take a break from the rest of the world.
