Don't Suffer Identity Theft Because of Fashion Tyranny and the Spirit of the Times

At Brandon Oriental Rugs (the rug specialty store in Bucks County, PA) we specialize in REAL handmade oriental rugs, and services tailored to homeowners and their designers who are seeking the best of what is available in fine quality rugs at the best possible prices.

Considering the monotony of low quality rug choices available online and in stores, our customers are demanding something different from "that". Though harder to find, and less readily available than ever before, our customers want artisan quality rugs: traditionally crafted yet unique.

If the statements below -- which we hear all the time from our customers -- sound like what you are thinking as you consider purchasing a fine rug for your home, please give Brandon Oriental Rugs a call, or arrange a visit, to discuss how we can make the rug you want to see actually appear on your floor:

"I am tired of that common look."
"Those contempo rugs that look like someone spilled a can of paint on them do NOT interest me." 
"I don't want a rug that looks like it came from Renovation Hardware or Home Depot, or got delivered by Amazon or any of all those other websites offering the same programmed look." 
"I don't want a rug that looks like that jumble of junk you see on the first three pages of every internet rug site." 
"If it is something that looks like I could buy it out of a catalog, I'll pass."
"I've spent a lot of time and money to create a uniquely personal interior design environment in my home. I do NOT want a rug that looks like everyone else can have it."
"If it is being promoted to everyone else as "fashionable" and "au courant", don't even talk to me about it."
"If it has an SKU associated with it, don't even mention it to me. I'm one-of-a-kind; I only buy one-of-a-kind."

Brandon Oriental Rugs -- New hand-knotted silk and wool oriental rug selected by customers in Buckingham Township, PA for their dining room. Chosen to coordinate with a living room rug they selected from us years ago. This room stands on its own, but the view of the rooms together, like any harmony, is beautiful.

Often, proceeding slowly in a step-wise manner over time yields more organic, natural looking, and personally satisfying results.

Homeowners in New Hope, PA and their designer invited Bucks County, PA oriental and decorative rug specialists Brandon Oriental Rugs to help them find a fine quality hand-knotted oriental rug to serve as the starting point for a living room makeover. 

The rug selected is a modern interpretation, borderless India Agra design with embossed silk highlights. 

Even if nothing else changes in the room, the rug is doing a superb job of pulling everything together and making the room more inviting.

Brandon Oriental Rugs -- A traditional handmade oriental rug is on the right side of the above demonstration photo. A trendy, modern rug is seen on the left side. Though strikingly different, both rugs appear to have merit as design solutions for the room and its decor.

There is an unseen difference, however, that we invite you to consider. At some not-so-distant future time, one rug will still be looking like a good choice; while the other will be probably be looking for an out-of-the-way room to be useful -- or maybe a place in the trash.

Because of the timelessness of its design, and perpetual popularity of its style, the traditional oriental rug on the right will still look fresh and right for the room no matter how far into the future you care to forecast.

Unfortunately, the intriguingly contemporary rug on the left is going to look like a mistake, and feel old, as soon as ever-morphing fashion decides that the "happening thing" is in some new style.

Your home is an oasis from the hardships of the journey through life. Don't allow yourself to be assailed in your place of rest by the "here today; gone tomorrow" restlessness of fashions that can never acknowledge the merits of timelessness.

Visit Brandon Oriental Rugs -- Bucks County, PA oriental rug specialists -- to access future fashion that goes on and on without the need to change a thing.
