They're Neutral but Not Boring
You know us here at Collyer's Mansion love color, print, and pattern. And while Beni Ourain rugs tend to be in the more neutral realm, they are still our favs! The pairing of black and white or cream and brown offers a beautiful contrast in a rug so that the pattern really shines. The pattern in each Beni Ourain varies giving each rug a special feeling that allows you to find a pattern and look that speaks to you.
They are Quality
Not all Beni Ourain-looking rugs are created equal. In fact, there are a lot of options out there that are influenced by these classic styles. But, we work with artisans and vintage sellers in Morocco and know first-hand that the benefits and quality of a real Beni Ourain are palpable when you see it open in your home. The real wool, the plush weaving, the striking colors and unique patterns of authentic Beni Ourain rugs make you need to have the real deal.
