Moroccan seating is typically low to the floor with plenty of cushions. The Souk Modular Sofa and Ottoman come Chair combinations are genius. You can transform your seating arrangements to suit your mood and number of guests. The blanket-stitched detailed and pretty dhurrie upholstery has a faded and distressed appearance. These come in four colours from light and subtle shades to dark turquoise, grey tones and wine red hues. The cushions are filled with foam so are very comfy. You can buy various pieces ranging from the sofa, ottoman and additional cushions to make a regular or corner chair from your ottoman.

Floor Covering For Moroccan Living Room Ideas

I just love these Moroccan Tile Mats which are made from industrial strength PVC so they are really hard-wearing and durable. The pretty and intricate tile design in greys and blues can be placed in any room and even outside. This is a great idea for your living room if you have children and need to give over a portion of floor space for their toys. If you have a dining table in your lounge, this is ideal to pop underneath to save your main flooring from food spillage. It lies completely flat without wrinkling and you just roll it up when it’s not in use. These mats come in four sizes – £75-250 from Graham & Green.

For a real rug try the Benni 03 Rug which is 100% wool. The design has been inspired by a nomadic Moroccan tribe and has a simple, yet striking diamond-shaped black pattern.

It’s available in three sizes; 120cm x 190cm, 150cm x 240cm and 180cm x 270cm – £409, £699 and £799 from I love Retro at notonthehighstreet.com.
