Zeyno & Ghamarian Arrive

We are very excited in the showroom with the recent arrival of Zeyno & Ghamarian and their beautiful collection of Oriental rugs.
Especially striking are the Persian Gabbeh rugs. The rich, intense colors and thick, plush pile of these rugs are very sensual and evocative; especially as our gray winter lingers despite the furtive flowering plum and daffodils which are beginning to appear.
These rugs are traditionally woven by nomadic tribes of Southern Iran using locally sourced vegetable dyes and sheep wool.
The simple, graphic design of many of these rugs will translate in to almost any room where you desire beautiful color and elegance for your floors.
Remember that this is just a part of a whole new collection of Oriental rugs. We are showing small to room sized rugs which are antique to contemporary in design.
We are so fortunate that Zeyno has joined us in the showroom and added such a beautiful dimension.

La Cite Interdite

In honor of International Women’s Day, our post is of a Chinese ancestral reproduction that installs the matriarchs in the forefront.
The fabric on this antique chair is from a Pierre Frey collection from a few seasons past. It has been one of our favorites for the really exceptional design and production of this 100% linen fabric, designed in Paris and produced in Italy.
We hadn’t had much “action” on this fabric, “La Cite Interdite” Pierre Frey #F2721 until our associate, Kelly Gray had this chair upholstered for the showroom floor display.
The reaction has been remarkable. The orders have begun to flow in and we’re so grateful to see people respond to the product.
