Fenice rug

Desi as seen on The Mid-Century Modernist.

 

My brother-in-law is a rug dealer. But he’s not one of those middlemen who finds cheap carpets from questionable sources and pushes them on you in a showroom. He actually travels to places like Turkey, Nepal, and Iran and meets the weavers who make the products he sells and he works with them to create original designs appropriate for modern interiors.

 

For years I’ve begged him to offer his original rug designs online, but he likes the personal connection he makes with clients in his Santa Fe store, and it’s taken some time to find the right way to do the product justice online. Now he’s finally done it and I think it’s quite lovely.
