Beni Ourain

I splurged a few weeks ago and replaced my thrifted bedroom rug with an amazing *NEW* new Moroccan shag rug! It arrived this week and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve had my eye on this style of rug for a while… but you know… they’re expensive. I found this one on Gilt for a killer price though, so I went for it. (it even has little tassels on the ends!)

Yeah, this is a post about a rug, a NEW new rug! I feel a little like a trader to my thrifty self, every other furniture piece I own has been hunted and has many stories to tell. New pieces are also a little soulless aren’t they?... I walk through stores like Home Goods sometimes, and at first it seems like a candy store – where to start?! But I always leave empty handed because the quality for the price and the lack of uniqueness always gets to me.

Now back to this rug… I thought about it for a long time, researched it, soaked in a lot of the culture where they’re made. It has a story; it has a traditional Moroccan history. And for that I’m okay with being the first owner for once. You spend a lot of time at home, you should fill it with things you love!
