No need to trek around the globe to find carpets crafted with care, infused with rich color, and created to last through generations, because New York City is home to the J & D Oriental Rugs Company. This third generation, family-run business imports antique and semi-antique decorative oriental carpets from the far reaches of the globe – which these days, isn’t as exotic as it used to be, but still speaks to the very best quality. Interior designers in NYC flock to J&D Oriental because of their extensive and impressive inventory, so you should get in on the action too.
Choose from gorgeous Turkish, Persian, Khotan, Chinese, European, Vintage Ikats, and Indian carpets (and more), in an array of styles that include Intermediate, Square, Runner, Gallery, Small, Yastiks that are 2x3s or smaller, pairs and pillows. You can also find restoration services here, as well as appraisals. Nothing dresses a room like a fine rug. Hundreds of fine vintage carpets are featured on the J&D Oriental website at http://www.jdorientalrugs.com, and you can call or visit:
