[Rug-Search (tm) is Brandon's proprietary searchable database of available, and soon to be available, oriental rugs at the wholesale level from importers in the USA, Canada, Great Britain and the EU; and producers in the rug making countries along the old Silk Route.]
This is a "No hurry. Must be exact" search that dates back to October 2012, when our customer in Warminster, PA selected the rug shown below from Brandon Oriental Rugs for her dining room.
In a small home, the living room rug will be just five feet away from the edge of the dining room rug. All of the decisions for the living room will be based on the rug choice: furnishings, paint, and window treatments. Our customer's perception of color is exact and emotionally nuanced. Since choosing the rug for the dining room, she has shopped for the living room rug by herself, and with help from interior designers, at many rug stores in the metropolitan Philadelphia region; in addition to seeing (thus far) over twenty different rug ideas through Brandon.
We don't know if others are still engaged on her behalf or not. We do know that - based on the promise we made when she chose her dining room rug - we have continued looking for any rug in existence and available to us that might be of merit in resolving her search; and will continue looking until we find the ideal rug for her, or until she somehow runs into it on her own.
This is the longest, most extensive search we've ever mounted. It is unusual.Most searches are resolved by us at the first presentation; and several suppliers have counselled walking away, aware that many of the selections presented thus far were suitable solutions to the challenge. But we have a promise to keep. In fact, in the over twenty years Brandon has been a complete service for oriental rugs, many customers have been reassured to know that we keep on looking for what they are looking for until one of the following happens: we find it; they find it elsewhere; or they just give up trying to find it anywhere. Usually, we'll find it. Promise.
