Imagine being overwhelmed by passionate reds, intense blues, and shimmering yellows followed by a trance from the detailed, intricate patterns. Moorish style is quite like that. It is derived from a Western style based on the architecture and decorative arts of the Islamic culture (the Moors) of northwest Africa and of southern Spain. The Alhambra Palace, located in Granada, Spain, is the finest surviving example of the Moorish style. The Moorish style, which has recently been rediscovered, has a closer affiliation with Moroccan culture and its sensual appeal through art and colors. The style is very unique and does the job if you are looking for a variation of intensity to counterbalance an otherwise simple room. Take a peek at two of our products, the Alhambra Lamp, and the Moorish Chest, to familiarize yourself with the vibrant passion the Moorish style invokes. And here’s some photos from one of our employees who actually took a trip to the Alhambra Palace!
