Pioneers Of The Steely Colorway


Antique Rug Connection Inc. 

is the pioneer to the Steely Colorway which includes, blues, grays, ivories, celadon greens, and neutrals  with  a steely iced look, rather than the traditional gold hues found in a lot of rugs. Their signature Platinum line is a riflection of that.

 

 

Experience The Difference-Why Us?

As in any item, it is the vision of the designer that is translated into the finished product. When the manufacturer is the designer, who has expertise and experience in all facets of rug making; mastering restoration, weaving, dying and color correction-it is of optimum benefit. This is a "qualitative difference" that is imperative when selecting a carpet dealer or manufacturer. Understanding the back end of weaving and the front end of client’s tastes and aesthetics of color and design harmony, is the difference that you experience, when dealing with Antique Rug Connection Inc. This company stands apart as wholesalers of Antique and Vintage rugs as well as Direct Manufacturers and Service Specialists.
