Jewel-Toned Berber Rugs, by Way of Brooklyn

Brooklyn-based husband-and-wife design team Brin Reinhardt and Nathan Ursch (they both did stints at Design Within Reach) founded Breuckelen Berber when they couldn't locate their dreamed-of ideal carpet.

On a trip to Morocco, they discovered Berber textile arts and came home with a vintage Beni Ouarain, which inspired a new career path. After a bit of research, they began importing the vintage carpets; they now offer several styles and a range of colors (including these monochromatic Beni M'Guild in brilliant jewel tones). For more information, go to Breuckelen Berber.
