Moroccan culture is filled with exquisite history, architecture, and design. Known for its elaborate details and bold colors, you can add flair to any room using Morocco’s signature styles. With both the sea and the desert as influences, one can find frequent usage of earthy tones like gold and yellow as well as blues. Along with this comes the classic inlaid style seen in the ornate tilework of Morocco. This traditional tilework (or zillij) groups small tiles together to build intricate mosaics and geometric patterns.
The dramatic arches of Moroccan palaces are also mimicked in smaller pieces, such as these beautiful coffee tables. Regardless of your living space, you’re bound to find one that inspires you to add a touch a Moroccan style to your own life.
