“Oh Wow” is a phrase uttered over and over again when clients visit our Doylestown Bucks County Oriental Rug Gallery and ascend the back staircase to our expansive second floor antique rug showroom. This gallery has been the crown jewel of downtown historic Doylestown for over 27 years, drawing architects, interior designers, rug collectors and clients alike from across the country.
The enormous amount of genuine centuries old antique rug inventory is at first both overwhelming and exciting. Glorious antique Persian Serapi and Heriz rugs grace numerous walls. Super fine Persian Kashan and Sarouk rugs are piled high along each corridor. Mansion size Persian Farahan and Persian Kerman rugs cover the expansive hardwood floors. Exquisite antique French Aubuson tapestries hang next to antique Chinese Nichol and Peking rugs with exotic oriental motifs in scrumptious colors such as gold, lavender and robin’s egg blue. Large thick rolls of Turkish Ushak, Shirvan, and Sultanabad rugs line every wall. The most decorative antique Caucasian Kazaks and Turcoman kilos drape ceilings high above pile after pile of even more one of a kind antique rugs. It is simply wonderful.
This is the space I adore. It is the culmination of a life time of the travel, assembling a treasure trove of magnificent antique oriental rugs. This is where I lose myself for whole days, studying the design and weave techniques of these stunning works of art. Surrounded by such splendor, I find it divinely inspirational and one of the most inspirational to design new rug collections.
“Oh Wow” is right.
Happy Rug Shopping!
