New Application for Old Rugs: A Curtain!


This Sotheby's preview this March for the Sedlin Family Collection Sale we walked the gallery with a very kind couple.  Standing with them in front of a old polychrome silk warp Senna (see Lot 42), one comment that stood out was how the rug draped like a fine fabric.

Browsing online rugs, we came across this photograph below.  An interesting decoratating option for a piled rug:  Use it as a curtain!

Hi Bukhara-Carpets!

It's a very interesting concept. A great way to preserve the investment potential in higher grade rugs and collectible antiques provided they're protected from too much direct sunlight.

All the best,



Look for the RRA Button before purchasing your Rug
