What’s Hot In Area Rugs For The Home Owner
Recently, I had the opportunity to do a very informal and unrehearsed radio spot in which the interviewer’s opening question was, “So, what’s new and happening in rugs this season? What is popular? What are the people looking for? ”
Well, the answer was not as simple. At the gallery we routinely go through our sales records to determine “what is hot” and what we should be buying for inventory. Thus research has shown us that no one particular color, style or type of rug is in the lead. Our customers are drawn to the unusual, the artisan workshop pieces and the subtle elegance of the fine antiques. We have found that the highest level of quality in materials and craftsmanship is what is winning out time and time again and our very discerning customers are quick to see the difference.
As we approach the new century, Nesting continues to be of utmost importance. People view house and home as their personal retreat. Isn’t that what it should be? Even the phrase “going home” connotes pleasure and relaxation. More time and money is being spent now than ever before on making home the best it can be. The era of disposable household decorations, meant to last only a few years, may finally be at an end. A true sense of individuality and style is evident in so many people who are truly excited about acquiring possessions they love, family heirlooms to be passed on to future generations along with the special memories these places often hold.
So, our search for “what is new” at the J. Namnoun Oriental Rug Gallery will continue to be the very best find, the most beautiful and finest examples we can offer, whether old or new, your future family heirlooms.
