About Nicolas

I have been involved in every aspect of the rug business for 33 years in the UK and USA, from wholesale to retail and with new, old and antique rugs. In the USA I worked sourcing rugs for some of the finest interior designers, selling museum quality rugs to the very discerning. My new website reflects my varied taste, wide ranging suppliers and very reasonable pricing. I always find the very best rug in any budget- I work up to a quality and do not down to a price and am punctual, knowledgeable and always give exemplary transparent customer service. Nothing is too much trouble.

If you would like to use my website and services I very much look forward to finding or making you the perfect rug!
