The first time I ever saw a Beni Ourain rug was in this house tour, here on Apartment Therapy. I saved the picture in Evernote with the caption: NEED THIS RUG. Then suddenly I started seeing Beni Ourain rugs all over the place. I started to wonder if I really liked them, or just thought I did because I saw them everywhere. But then there was that original picture, reminding me that it was love at first sight.
