THE SATURATED COLOR COLLECTION
"A Beni Mguild rug was also the back drop for style icon Yves Saint Laurent’s avant guard runway collection in 1969. Beni Mguild rugs are those Moroccan beauties whose saturated pink, red, peach, blue, and ochre backgrounds set the tone for warmth and joy in interior design. Many 20th century designers have been captured by the unique personality of Moroccan Berber rugs, whose abstract and geometrical motifs are the vanguard of modernist and post-modernist style. Le Corbusier famously said, "Do as the Berber do: marry imagination to the most recognisable geometry, but define the imagination.” And with that in mind, he showcased Moroccan Berber rugs in his Maison La Roche-Jeanneret and Pavilion de l’Esprit Nouveau. And neither did the boldly colored Beni Mguild rug escape the imaginations of Charles and Ray Eames, who placed the rugs in richly decorated terra-cotta and burnt siena shades in their California home in the early 60s."
