Antique and Vintage Rug Auction
Nazmiyal Rug Auction: November 6th — Autumn is a season of change – as the foliage is transformed and we trade in our swimsuits for sweaters, it feels as if we’re collectively turning over a new leaf. We’re bidding farewell to lazy summer vacations, getting back to work and getting excited about new projects.
For many, the impulse to adjust and improve which comes with the changing of the seasons stretches into our home-décor aspirations. As the air gets colder and we’re spending more time inside, it makes sense that many of us are feeling inspired to transform our homes into more stylish and welcoming spaces — After all, retreating home to escape the cold is much more enjoyable if you adorn your nest with furnishings that bring a sense of beauty and tranquility to your home.
For those with the itch to invest in their interiors this fall, Nazmiyal Auctions offers an enticing option: The auction house, which deals primarily in fine antique rugs and vintage carpets, is kicking off its season with a spectacular auction of over 120 antique rugs sourced from their collection, as well as from collectors’ estates across the US and Europe. The live auction, which will take place online on November 6th at 7:00pm, EST, gives customers a rare opportunity to purchase these antiques at a steep discount: Starting bids for all of the items are much lower than the rugs’ true market values, which means that upgrading your interior with a classic and authentic piece of history is more attainable than you may realize.
In addition to the fact that pieces in this auction are priced-to-sell, another aspect of this sale that will appeal to shoppers is the extraordinary variety of colors, styles, and sizes offered by Nazmiyal Auctions. The pieces in the collection offered in Nazmiyal’s November 6th sale range in origin from China to Persia, to Morocco and beyond. There is a large selection of antique Turkish Oushak rugs, which are highly coveted by interior designers, as well as rugs by well-known weavers and artists such as Marta Maas Fjetterstrom, from Sweden. Traditional and highly collectible oriental rugs from China and the Middle East are available, while tribal rugs from the Caucuses and Art-Deco carpets from across the world offer customers with modern tastes plenty of options. Jason Nazmiyal, owner of Nazmiyal Auctions, reiterates the exceptional variety of this selection: “The auction on November 6th undoubtedly has something for everyone. Whether you’re a collector, dealer, designer or an individual shopping for your own home or office, I’m confident our selection will exceed your expectations”.
Exceeding customer expectations is important to Nazmiyal, who in addition to offering condition reports on each piece in the collection as well as access to his staff of rug experts, is presenting customers with the opportunity to come into Nazmiyal’s Manhattan showroom and preview the rugs in person. The auction preview will take place Monday, November 3rd to Thursday, November 6th, from 10:00am until 5:00pm. At the preview, experts will be on hand to answer any questions potential bidders may have and customers will have a chance to view the true color texture, and quality of the auction lots in person.
Although the auction will be held live online on Thursday, November 6th at 7:00pm, bidders may place bids online, by telephone, or via absentee bid forms from now until the close of the auction. Interested customers can learn more about how to place bids on this auction by calling Nazmiyal (Monday through Friday, 9:00am-5:00pm, at 212-545-8029), or by visiting Nazmiyal Auctions online.
