@tovfurniture does an amazing job of using there space to be welcoming and cozy. With eye popping and trending furniture, I enjoy stopping in every market to see what they are doing. They show me a side of design I am not as familiar with.

Love Dalyn Rug Company Montana collection- “hide” rugs that aren’t hides.

My son has the zebra print one. So easy to clean. Really cool rugs that can layer over oriental rugs to bring a stand alone piece.

Our Rad 80's Mixtape is an original Kush design, inspired by old school cassette tapes. Before digital playlists, making a mixtape was a way to curate a musical mood. We hope our rug tribute hits the right note!

Togar Rugs knows the importance of supporting their talented staff. Motherhood and working is a balancing act- thank you for sharing your appreciation of your team member Rebecca Cate.

Pictured first, our sales associate, Rebecca Cate is holding one of our beautiful Sultanhan’s. Pictured second, she is holding her gorgeous little girl, Betty Louise. Finding childcare isn’t always easy (especially during a pandemic) and sometimes you have an unexpected ‘bring your daughter to work day’. We appreciate all the hard work she does as a working mom and are lucky to have her part of of the Togar family!

We love hearing the story of a rug. Rustigian Rugs they know their stuff. What a cool rug.

Ever done a puzzle... on a puzzle?
This area rug was designed by Frank Gehry for Arzu, an NGO founded to provide fair wages and educational opportunities for Afghan women weavers. Arzu continues its good work under the auspices of Turquoise Mountain In Afghanistan. Stop by our showroom to see this delightful designer rug.

The math that goes into rug design is amazing.

#KnowYourObeetees—A trip back in time, when a blue print for a carpet was hand painted on graphs— every dot corresponded to the knot a weaver tied on the carpet. For this carpet, there are 70 knots in a square inch

Beautiful rugs
I was just gifted this native rug. I am told it may have been created with natural dyes, and that the ant/spider motif is unusual. Can you provide any information about the rug or its care? I plan to prepare it for wall hanging, not in direct sunlight.
