While we always love a great Persian rug, sometimes an interior calls for something a little more whimsical. If that’s the case, a
boucherouite rug may be the answer. Originating from Morocco, boucherouite
rugs were often constructed weaving scraps of fabric in graphic patterns.
Ironic since they have become synonymous these days with luxury.
The most iconic example of a boucherouite rug would have to be a Beni Ourain. Now widely considered a timeless classic, his designs
blend with an array of interior styles and always looks so rich. In the
examples below, let’s explore its more colorful cousin.
This eclectic modern interior layers multiple boucherouite rugs in a variety of patterns and colors. While each
rug is distinctly unique, they all work together in the same way that a single
more traditional carpet would.
Another great example of layering boucherouite rugs is this open concept living room. I find that the use of multiple rugs
lends to the airiness of the space and also exposes those amazing white-washed
wide plank floors.
Boucherouite rugs are also perfect for children’s rooms. Their vibrant colors and often loud patterns add a touch of fun and whimsy.
They are also machine washable, a major plus!
You often see boucherouite rugs being used in monochromatic interiors. Their geometric patterns often translate
towards a more modern, often minimalistic, aesthetic and provide a much needed
pop of color without overwhelming the space.
Boucherouite rugs come in an extremely wide variety of patterns and colors. However, designs tend to lean either towards
being more linear, like the rug on the left, or more geometric, often using the
diamond shape, like the rug on the right
