There’s something perfectly simplistic about the Beni Ourain rug, with its thick, creamy pile, and coffee-colored diamonds. It’s so neutral and and beautifully benign that it blends into almost any room: traditional enough to accompany a club chair and brick fireplace, but also bohemian enough to pair with a low-slung, pillow-strewn daybed, some pale oak, and a lush, leafy palm.
But at this point, the Morrocan diamond-print rug is so ubiquitous as to have lost a bit of its luster. Luckily, there are dozens of variations on this theme, so you can break outside the Beni Ourain box and mix things up a bit more. Here are our 8 favorite options if you’re looking to maintain that laid-back global vibe, but are tired of that same old rug.
