Rug & Home Says Congratulations, McKinney Design!

JG1

The entire Rug & Home organization would like to congratulate McKinney Design on taking home Second Prize in the 2014 Southern Christmas Show’s interior design contest!

 Rug & Home has maintained a close and productive relationship with the Interior Design Society of Charlotte over the JG4years. We often loan members of IDS Charlotte furniture, rugs and accessories directly from our showroom floor, which they can then use to design lovely rooms for industry and charity shows. Ruth McKinney of McKinney Design has placed first or second at every show in which she’s participated – always designed exclusively with pieces from Rug & Home.

We couldn’t be more proud of Ruth and her latest triumph or more grateful to her for including our products in her beautiful rooms. Congratulations to McKinney Design, and best of luck to Ruth and all other IDS Charlotte members at the 2015 Southern Spring Show!

Aanchal Agarwal Gupta Gives Class on Rugs and their Role in History

Aanchalteaches 11112014On November 11, Rug & Home Director of Strategy Aanchal Agarwal Gupta led a Continuing Educational Unit (CEU) for the Interior Design Society of Charlotte on recognizing rug quality and using rugs to accent different rooms. An expert in rugs in her own right, Aanchal gave her exclusive audience a condensed history of the decorative floor covers. Covering roughly four thousand years, the historical portion of the afternoon ranged from the first hand-woven rugs created by the Mongolian empire (c. 2000 BCE) to the recent (2011-2012 CE) trend of Sari Silk rugs; these latter are upcycled by weaving wool together with the silken threads of unused saris.20141111_152948
