We were floored

Founded in 1980, Claremont Rug Company spe­cial­izes in investment-level art rugs — including room-sized Persian car­pets and rare 19th cen­tury tribal, vil­lage, and court area-size rugs. Elixir is delighted to have just com­pleted our first assign­ment with this new client, a direct mail piece high­lighting recent acquisitions.

For those of you con­sid­ering a flooray into the world of “art for the floor” con­sider the advice of the Financial Times, which has sep­a­rately described Claremont Rug as “one of the world’s best sources of antique car­pets.” You can read more about Claremont’s busi­ness and one-of-a-kind “white glove ser­vice” at the New York Times.

Shown here: a handful of Claremont Rug’s newest acqui­si­tions. At the show­room, you can see, touch, and put your best foot for­ward on museum-quality rugs. {6087 Claremont Avenue, Oakland CA 94618. Hours: Mon — Sat 11.00 am — 6.00 pm}
