This gorgeous black and white area rug has a modern look, but it was inspired by the Moroccan rugs created by the Berber rug weavers in Morocco. It uses a simple black and white stripe motif that looks like strips of fabric that have been sewn together. Both the pattern and technique reflect those used by these ancient cultures.

Black and white is a classic color combination that always creates a fresh and clean look. This area rug from Afghanistan has a graphic quality that is perfect for contemporary, Ultra-Modern furniture design as well as specifically curated Moroccan interior designs. Black and white continue to be classic color combinations, but designers are now combining them into bold colors and mixed patterns that add vibrancy and energy to the room.

This modern Moroccan design area rug uses simple shapes and has a modern art feel. It would make a striking addition to a room with modern or retro furniture that uses a minimalist design and features black square metal legs. You could also use this rug as the foundation for a nature-inspired space by adding natural textures and colors. A few oversized plants in solid black pots would create a unique look that is updated and fresh.

The best part about this contemporary Moroccan design area rug is that it is versatile. You could use it in a simple black and white color scheme, or you could add a pop of color with brilliant reds, blues, yellows, and other saturated tones. You could highlight the geometric shapes and hard lines of the rug, or you could soften them by using natural textures and a soft color palette. An inspired room design begins with finding the perfect rug, and this one will allow you to create an imaginative and personalized space that reflects your unique style.
