The Classic Beni Ourain Rug . . . and then some.

We are so excited to have just stocked some gorgeous handmade rugs from Turkey. Styled after the classic Beni Ourain rug from the Middle Atlas mountains in Morocco, these 100% wool rugs are very unusual and very special.

The weave creates a very soft rug. You may never want to put your shoes on again!

Ancient Beni Ouarain breed of sheep grazing.The Beni Ouarain tribes did not use their original carpets as floor covers, but rather as beds and bedding.

Here, Jonathan Adler uses a Beni at the Parker Palm Springs.

Right now, we have 2 different Beni-style rugs in-stock. Both are handmade in Turkey, and are 100% wool. The hexagon shaped pattern (pictured above), 
and the diamond shape patterned rugs.

Check out more pictures of these great rugs on our website!

It was great to see our Leaves and Seeds Pendant Light 
featured in the blog, life's little jems
The blog's author, Jessica Marx, of J. Marx Atelier 
posted the beautiful light in a 1.26.11 post titled, 
"smoke n' gold."

And we agree! The Leaves and Seeds Pendant Light 
is truly breathtaking to see. Inspired by a 1930's French necklace, 
the light was designed by artist Laura Kirar for Arteriors Home.

Thanks Jessica!
