An oriental interior for a thousand and one nights atmosphere

Disorientation, warmth, originality and conviviality are the key words of oriental decoration.

Whether in the bedroom, the living room or the bathroom, oriental decoration will give you a change of scene! Having a room that looks like a holiday and a 5-star hotel becomes possible thanks to the selection of oriental furniture from Design Market.

The essentials of oriental decoration

Berber rugs

For a 100% oriental decoration, you must first of all choose your oriental patterned carpet, with long pile, printed and in the colours of your choice. Berber carpet, boujaad, kilim, boucherouite… all these carpets come from the Berber decoration. Note that the real Berber carpets are hand woven in Morocco by the Beni Ouarains tribes.

Each carpet tells a story thanks to its motifs which reflect the personality of the weaver around the themes of fertility, birth, religion or nature.

For a discreet and neutral style, we advise you to opt for a white or ecru Berber carpet with very discreet patterns such as black diamonds. If, on the other hand, you prefer original and warmer interiors, choose a coloured and warmer carpet.

Authentic Moroccan carpets also feature more refined designs where the sheep’s wool is more visible. These trendy and charming carpets are composed of loose geometric shapes and more common colours that allow them to adapt to all styles of interior decoration.

Oriental lighting

What would oriental decoration be without oriental lighting? For ultra-warm evenings, opt for oriental lighting to bring a touch of exoticism and warmth to your interior.

Table lamps, candles, oriental suspensions or lanterns, prefer golden and openwork lights which let the light pass and project shadows on the walls. A thousand and one nights atmosphere guaranteed!

Oriental furniture

For a real cosy cocoon, opt for some oriental furniture. Choose wooden furniture such as enfilades by Cees BRAAKMAN, Henry Walter KLEIN, Arne VODDER or Ib KOFOD-LARSEN, openwork or engraved furniture with rose motifs for example. You can also choose furniture with original and hexagonal shapes for a warm, friendly and exotic atmosphere.

Wall decorations

What better way to complete your decoration than with wall decorations? Wall carpets, paintings, golden sun mirrors, woven plates, choose elements that inspire you to travel and escape. You can also complete your decoration with oriental and animal sculptures but be careful not to overload your room. This decoration will bring more warmth to your room.
