Modern Marrakech, Reimagined and Authentically Moroccan

 
09-16-2014By: Woven Accents Antique Rug Dealer
 



 

New at Woven Accents, the Modern Marrakech Collection captures the organic whimsy and childlike quality found in vintage Moroccan design reimagined in a larger scale for the modern interior.

Ranging in sizes form 9x12 to 14x20, the result of tireless work by artisanal weavers, these pieces posses a natural abrash that lends a sense of wisdom while invoking the imagination with a one-of-a-kind feel.

Meet the Artist, Break the Mold

Meet the Artist, Break the Mold
I’m not the greatest at writing these things, mainly because I think in moods, shapes, colors, and feelings. Words are just translation. I’ve had many epiphanies leading me to this point as an artist, each one with its own story. Thinking back, though, there is a moment when I realized how much I love art and wanted a creative life.

My Story by Krista Blair
I remember years ago hearing that old adage "Love what you do and the rest will come." The thing is though, loving what you do, what you're good at...it can take time, sometimes years, to figure out what that is. A big part of my story has been travel.

Denise McGaha on Finding Her Passion in Interiors
One morning in 2011, I stood there with a three-month old baby on my hip and the world before me. Just three months after my son was born and three months after 9/11, my life changed forever. Living in Dallas, my once fabulous corporate career was no longer, and I had a new baby and a different view of life.

My Story, My Journey: The Collaborator

My Story, My Journey: The Collaborator
As long as I can remember, I have been drawn to art and collaborating with others. In fact, I was nine years old when I first heard the word "collaboration." I liked the way it rolled off my tongue. More importantly, I liked the idea of co-creating with others. Karen Ray, author of The Nimble Collaboration, describes collaboration as a "mutually beneficial and well-defined relationship entered into by two or more [persons] to achieve results they are more likely to achieve together, than alone."

Your Story is Your Treasure: Be Inspired by Ginna Christensen
I’ve always been driven by my imagination. From the time I was four, I made up stories and created characters - or imaginary friends, whatever you want to call them - to help me make sense of the world. From the birth of my brother to the flat tire my mom got one Sunday evening on the Verrazano Bridge, I created stories to understand it all.
