Jason Nazmiyal - Founder

Jason Nazmiyal - FounderRug Expert and Antique Rug Specialist:

I have been in the business of acquiring and selling antique rugs for twenty-five years. Rugs are my passion, and my tastes are eclectic, 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.

Albert Karmeli - A Life in the World of Rugs Albert Karmely 

A Life in the World of Rugs: 

For the past several decades Albert Karmely has perhaps been the most important and influential rug dealer in the world. One could say that he was born into the business. Already by 1900 his family were established rug dealers. 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 exporting Persian rugs to other Middle Eastern regions.. Read more ....

As general manager I strive to make sure that the customer is our primary consideration. However important the rug may be, the customer always comes first.

In achieving this goal I assure that the greatest attention is paid to the smallest detail. Nothing makes me happier than seeing our clients find the rug that is right for them.
Rug Experts  Alen Erfanian - Manager

Alan Erfanian - ManagerRug Expert and Antique Rug Specialist:
Alen Erfanian was born in Iran, where his father was established as a rug dealer. He has been surrounded by carpets all his life, especially antique carpets. But professionally he came to the carpet world from an initial background in the garment and fashion industry. He arrived in New York in 1989, and for the past twenty years he has worked with Albert Karmely in various capacities – wholesale buying, sales, and management. In Erfanian's view, carpets work much like textile and fashion design. "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." The years of working with Albert Karmely have only confirmed Erfanian's commitment to the quest of acquiring antique carpets woven with a masterful sense of color and design.
