I ask; have you seen the Morrocan Rug.  I ask, but I think I know the answer because it’s everywhere.  In magazines, design makeover shows and online.  It is all the rage and trending.  So today I thought we would look at how to get the look for less.

I have seen this rug just about everywhere.  And every time I see this rug it catches my eye.  I am sure there are other color variations, but I see the cream with black diamond style in most of the room designs.  I think this look is most appealing because although the design is classic in style, the plush texture gives it a real ethnic appeal.  Morrocan rug

High Style   Morrocan rug

Just about every major design store has a version of this rug.  This one by West Elm shows the intricate detail of their version of the Morrocan rug which they call Souk.  This lovely rug comes in at a hefty $1199.00 as a room size 9″ x 12″ rug.  We will use this as our high-end designer rug.  Now let’s see if we can get the same look for less.   Morrocan rug

Low Cost

Morrocan rugA Match!

Look what I found!  The Fez rug by NuLoom is almost an exact match to our high-end rug.  It is the same size, 9′ x 12′ and has the same large fringe detail.  You know what it doesn’t have?  The price!  This gorgeous dupe is only $598.56.  More than half off the original rug’s price.   This is our Best Match!  Morrocan rug


Half-off!  Not bad, but can we do better?

The Hudson rug by Safavieh while has the same color scheme and size as the other rugs at 9′ x 12′ it does have a slightly different style.  The pattern has a more quatrefoil shape than the diamond pattern of the high-end rug.  Still with a price tag of only $291.54 it is a really good option.   Morrocan rug

This rug by NuLoom called Lola is slightly smaller than our high-end rug at 8′ x 10′ and doesn’t have the fringe detail.  But guess what else it doesn’t have?  The high price.   This lovely rug is only $152.37.  A super low price tag for a room sized rug.  This is our Best Bargain!   Morrocan rug
