Rugs: Breuckelen Berber in Brooklyn

Issue 49 · An English Christmas · December 7, 2011

Brooklyn-based husband-and-wife design team Brin Reinhardt and Nathan Ursch (they both did stints at Design Within Reach) founded their new rug venture, Breuckelen Berber, when they couldn't locate the carpet they had in mind. On a trip to Morocco, they discovered Berber textile arts and came home with a vintage Beni Ouarain. After a bit of research, they began importing the vintage carpets; they now offer several styles and a range of colors. For more information, go to Breuckelen Berber.
