Curious about the antique Persian rugs Grandma left you? Want to make intelligent choices when picking out your own floor coverings? Come join an industry expert as he guides you through the ins and outs of buying and selling fine rugs.
We will start off this experience with some cheese and wine to socialize and relax. Then we will enter the Nemati Collection Showroom where our host Darius Nemati, industry expert will cover a wide range of topics but not limited to:
- How to balance quality/condition/price/esthetics and the inherent limitations when using antique carpets
- When does it make sense to use “reproductions”?
- The vast new market of contemporary rugs – where are the pitfalls, some basic quality standards
- How to sensibly mix contemporary and antique carpets in the same home
- The proper cleaning and maintenance of fine rugs
- Is this rug worth fixing? We will look at some examples and go over how to determine whether something is worth restoring.
Participants are encouraged to bring in snapshots of their damaged rugs to evaluate as well.
