Moroccan rugs (especially in the Beni Ourain style) are all the rage right now, appearing in all kinds of publications in all kinds of interiors, from the very traditional to the very modern. If you want an authentic, honest-to-goodness Moroccan rug, you have a few options: buy from a reseller here in the US, or make a trip to Morocco to visit the bazaar on your own. (You can also buy directly from the artisans at sites like this one.) But if that's not in the cards for you, there are also plenty of mass-produced rugs available in similar styles, and usually at a fraction of the price. Here are 13 of our favorite options under $300.
Hand woven by people of the Beni Ourain tribe and other neighboring tribes in the mountains of Morocco, the authentic version of these wool rugs traditionally feature a black diamond pattern woven into a cream foreground.
For each of the options, we tried to find a rug as close as possible in size to a 5' by 7', so you could compare prices side by side, though most of these rugs are also available in other sizes, as well.
The look for a lot less — an affordable choice for anybody on a tight budget.
Irregular patterns give these rugs a pleasing, organic feel.
This rug adds a playful element with just a little bit of color.
A very authentic look at a very reasonable price. Items come and go on Joss & Main as it's a flash-sale site, so take note of that if you have to have this one!
