Old New House :: Antique + vintage home décor to take you places
Thank you for visiting and exploring Old New House (ONH), a New York based, family-owned company. We are Melissa + Dave, curators and creators behind Old New House with a strong passion for special antique, vintage and handmade items. We specialize in old hand knotted carpets of all vintages and types, wall art as well as hand made original pillows, and furniture.
We take great pride when it comes to featuring select antique and vintage rugs venerable for high decorative value, ageless appeal and desirable aesthetic. Authenticity, genuine age and period correct décor are important to us, as are texture and colors. Inspired floral and geometric vintage Persian rugs with modern classic motifs are a shop favorite, as are rugs from Turkey, Near, Mid and Far East. We source and carry rare and collectible rugs from antiquities to the 19th century, as well as outworn, distressed and faded carpets such as our vintage Oushak rugs and even the amazing texture of Moroccan carpets from Kilim to Berber. We love older woven examples with a story, and in many cases this brings our selection of fine carpets through the early and mid 20th century. Regardless of style, we feel a strong connection between the timeless and ancient artisan craft of hand knotted Oriental Rugs. In our offering choice and select examples of rugs in classic and olden appeal, we know you will find our fine selection and attention to detail among the most discerning to be found. We are highly selective when maintaining and curating a fine collection of hand knotted carpets for our inventory.
Creating a hand woven rug is an intimate and sophisticated process. A weaver may spend months, sometimes years to complete an area rug or large carpet. Our goal is to consistently carry a fine representation from many rug weaving regions and countries. We showcase rugs from well appreciated carpet weaving areas often historically known for timeless and classic period specific designs, enduring qualities, each with distinct style and motifs. Among our favorites to have in the shop include Caucasian rugs, Persian rugs (Bijar rugs, Kerman rugs, Sarouk rugs, Tabriz rugs and more), as well as Anatolian rugs. More recently we have expanded our new additions to encompass genuine Oushak rugs and Moroccan carpets from the 1940's, 50's and 60's vintages. Whether your furnishings reflect mid-century modern and tribal fusion, traditional or other, a fine hand knotted rug reflects the soul of the room. Old rugs with beautiful designs, colors, textures and superb value can always be found in our rug section. There, you will find our top picks - we are committed to offering our favorite in unique and decorative rugs. Our focus is hand knotted, cut-pile rugs: Small mat size rugs 2'x3', 3'x4' throw rugs through area rug sizes 8'x10' and even 9'x12' up to 15'x30' palace sizes by request. We also carry a selection of rug runners generally double in length than width, from 2'x4', 3'x6' all the way up to kelleh or gallery runner sizes of 4', 5' wide to 12' long or greater. This size or small area rug sizes are idea for a hallway, vestibule or foyer. Whether searching for an accent entryway rug, runner or a large, unusual size carpet, just let us know and we can provide gorgeous options for your interior design project. Our inventory is boundless when it comes to hand knotted Oriental rugs of natural materials (wool, cotton, silk or a blend).
The ONH wall art section is no exception of our commitment to you. In our shop you will also find rare, unique and hard-to-find vintage pull down maps and school charts, as well as authentic artwork of fine line and brilliant colors. We love decorative ephemera accent pieces, and we feel you will find these to be wonderful accents for your walls too.
