My Recent Discovery! Beautiful Amish Furniture!

This morning I spent over 45 minutes on this wonderful web site reading about handmade Amish furniture.  I was introduced to this site by one of my clients. She casually mentioned it and my interest got the best of me.

After reading all about the craftsmanship involved and the quality of this furniture, I felt this was a great match for people that like Oriental rugs or even tribal rugs in particular.  Many of the pieces have simple lines and a timeless look.  Another aspect of the products offered that I really liked were the various finishes available and the interior decorating advises.  Always learning, that's for sure.  Have a look!

Beautiful Bijar Rug on the Way to Paradise!

This wonderful rug has been hiding in a warehouse in New Jersey for the last two years.  Brought in prior to the Persian Rug Embargo, my fantatic wholesaler has been revealing these pieces to me one by one!  This piece is 8' 8" x 11' 4" so that puts it somewhere between an 8 x 10 and a 9 x 12.  This is the classic Garrus design that one can see in antique Bijars.  This rug is new and was woven in the Bijar area.  Dyes of course are vegetable or plant based, wool is hand spun Persian wool and of excellent quality.  The rug will be arriving next Tuesday at which time I will do a short video and post it on my You Tube channel.   Here are a couple of photos of this lovely piece.  Enjoy!

World Class Bijar Still Available! Cypress and Willow Design with Tree of Life.

I studied this rug in depth yesterday and it only became more beautiful the longer I looked.  Noticing the many nuances of it's detailed drawing I did find the intentional mistake.  In fact, I found two.  My hint is that the rug is not exactly the same from left to right, nor top to bottom yet perfectly balanced in color and design.  That takes skill.  To find the intentional mistakes, you may have to come and see this wonderful work of art in person.  You are invited!    

This piece is 10'3 x 13'9".
