Life After Beni [The Coolest Abstract Geometric Rugs In Town]

I think it's fair to say that Beni Ourain and Moroccan Berber style rugs have been hogging the rug limelight for a few years now.

Although I still love a Beni, and would definitely still buy a real one if I ever make it to Morocco, the massive influx of faux-Beni’s (and yes, I do own one), has kind of taken away from my love of them. 

Like anything, overexposure is eventually a turn-off.

Two mysterious large yellow stains appeared on mine a few months ago, that turned out to be from an undisclosed noodle spillage by a certain young teenager. I couldn’t get the stains out for love nor money, and it looked really grotty, meaning that it got banished a while back. 

I was kind of over it anyway, and the fact that every man and his dog on Instagram had the same rug, meant that I wasn’t heartbroken. I doubt I'd have been quite so laid back about it, had it been a more expensive rug though!

I have a beautiful pink silk rug from The Plantation Rug Company that had once been in the bedroom, and displaced with the arrival of carpet, which now graces the floor of the living room in wake of the ruined beni-style one. Needless to say, a no food in the living room rule has since been introduced. Yes, I've become that person.

However, it's a touch too small, which has got me on the look-out for an eventual replacement, so I've rounded up my absolute favourites of the moment. You may sense a theme here: geometric abstracts, in soft, mostly neutral tones are clearly my thing right now...

I actually came across so many other beauties whilst researching this post that I may just have to another rug round up really soon. Watch this space!

  1. I love that one from Floor Story (the first pic) - that's fabulous! Alas, I have animals that are insistent on destroying every rug I bring in the house within a few months. I genuinely am not sure how I can justify ever buying one that isn't cowhide because it's the only kind that survives their abuse! xxx

  2. I've been toying with a custom colour for the Floor story rug. So many gorgeous options here.

So, what do you think? I'd love to know!
