About Us

There's nothing ordinary to be found in our gallery!There's nothing ordinary to be found in our gallery!
Every one of the treasures at Rug & Relic tells a story that's as unique and diverse as the clients we serve.  We consider every person who walks through our doors (or visits us online) a new friend, and we're dedicated to providing a browsing and shopping experience that is engaging, inspiring and forthrightly honest, as well as educational. 

In short, we are captivated by the connection of diverse peoples to each other, and their shared connections to their environments. That's why we focus on providing goods that are beautiful inside and out... ethically produced and sourced, sustainable, authentic (no faux!) and suited to compliment your life and personal style. 

This site is filled with our stories, about the artists and artisans we support,  and about the exquisite treasures we've brought to you, our clientele.  Every rug, every piece of pottery, every wood primitive... every piece we sell has a story to impart.  However, we'd also like to hear your story!   Please feel free to reach out to chat with us anytime, via email, through our Fan Page on Facebook, or even on Twitter.

If browsing in our virtual gallery doesn't provide as intimate a connection as you'd like, we also offer our clients the opportunity to view our goods in their homes, on an approval basis.  We also offer custom-design services for rugs and lighting, so if you don't see it here, we are happy to have it created for you!  Click here for more information about our services.
