One of the least known treasure troves in Wellington is Richard Pointon rugs in Petone. He is our 'go-to' supplier for the highest quality rugs that Richard himself hand sources from around the globe. We are like kids in a candy store whenever we visit his showroom, and earlier this week was no exception. Here are Eleanor and Katie carefully filtering through the hundreds of options to find the perfect rug for a client's entryway.
Richard can tell you the story behind each and every rug available; from the country of origin, history of the design, age, and often about the weavers themselves. Fascinating stuff, it beats a cheap and nasty 'rug liquidation sale' any day!
