Moroccan rugs: how I've styled them over the years
I've long been a big lover of a creamy, fluffy Beni Ourain rugs as well as the wild colors of some of the other Moroccan tribes. The pieces I love are handmade, one of a kind, and perfect for when you want something super lush underfoot. I've had them in all of my London flats, and think they pair perfectly with the FL mainstay of the worn rugs we love.
My first flat was a NY-style loft apartment that needed lots of warming up. I had 3 in here.
When I moved to my second flat in Notting Hill, I kept some of the same pieces! In an open space, the rugs need to relate in some way, and while I love the look of all vintage worn rugs, it's a strong vibe and I prefer to mix and match. You can see the FL rug in the kitchen, right next to the big Beni in the dining room.
I later switched the black one for this yummy colorful Heriz - my first official FL rug.
In my last flat in Marylebone, I had all sorts of Moroccan mixed with jute and the classic FL rugs.
In areas where you want cushy, luxe texture, not much can beat a Moroccan rug. They're handmade, totally unique and perfect for a collected, mixed aesthetic. We think they pair perfectly with our classic look, especially in open spaces!
