Owner & Antique Rug Expert

"I have been in the business of buying and selling antique rugs for over thirty years (since 1980). Antique rugs and carpets are my passion and my tastes are quite eclectic. My taste varies based on the merits of each individual rug - ranging from early, classical pieces to Art Deco and Modernist rugs. What matters to me primarily is the beauty and quality of a piece. I buy with my eye and with my heart. Living in New York, the Mecca of the rug world, and traveling extensively, I have the opportunity to search constantly for the best pieces that are available. My wide experience and contacts in the rug world enable me to buy competitively, to acquire quality pieces for the best value, and to pass this value along to our customers. My goal at Nazmiyal is to give our clients the finest rugs with greatest range of choices at the best value."

In achieving this goal, I am doing my best to assure that the greatest attention is paid to the smallest of details. Nothing makes me happier than seeing our clients find the rug that is right for them. Seeing the joy on a clients face is the greatest reward".

Alen Erfanian, antique rug expertAlen Erfanian
Showroom Manager & Antique Rug Expert

Alen Erfanian was born in Iran, where his father was an established rug dealer. He has been surrounded by fine carpets his entire life - especially antique carpets and Persian rugs. Professionally, Erfanian came into the carpet world from a background in the garment and fashion industry. Erfanian has been living and working in New York since 1989. For more than twenty years, he has worked with Albert Karmely in a variety of capacities, and is a respected figure within the world of antique rugs. In Erfanian's view, carpets have very much the same properties as textile and fashion design; the reason why people prefer certain pieces all comes down to the the details: "It's all about color, We all look with an individual eye or taste, and everyone's taste is different or distinctive. But a trained eye will always recognize what is beautiful and exceptional in a carpet. When a carpet is great, we know immediately."

For the past several decades Albert Karmely has been one of the most (if not - the most) influential antique rug and carpet dealer in the world. One could say that he was born into the business. By 1900 his family were established rug dealers in what is now, modern day Iran. During the early twentieth century, his father and older brothers were major importers of Persian rugs for the British ruling elite in India, as well exporters of Indian rugs to the western world. The family business was also active in Iran and Europe, and they were actively involved in the exportation of five and antique Persian rugs and carpets to other Middle Eastern regions and countries.
