From the owners Melissa + Dave
Thank you for visiting and exploring Old New House (ONH). 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 rugs, wall art as well as hand made original pillows, art and furniture.
We take great pride when it comes to featuring antique and vintage rugs venerable for high decorative value, ageless appeal and desirable aesthetic. Authenticity and genuine age is important to us, as are texture and colors. We carry rare and collectible rugs from antiquities - 19th century, as well as outworn and distressed rugs of the early 20th century. Regardless of style, we feel a strong connection between the timeless and ancient artisan craft of hand knotted Oriental rugs: choice, select rugs of classic and olden appeal play an important role in home decorating.
Regardless of origin, the process of creating a hand woven rug is a sophisticated melding of procuring material and weaver process. Our rug selection of vintage, mature semi-antique and antique rugs is a representation of well appreciated weaving areas historically known for period specific designs, enduring qualities and distinct styles and motifs. 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: This is our commitment in providing you as the customer, with unique and decorative rugs for your investment. Our focus is on small rugs 2'x3' thru area rug sizes 8'x10' and even 9'x12'. If you are looking for larger sizes, just let us know and we can provide options for your interior design project.
The ONH wall art section is no exception to our commitment to you. In our shop you will also find very hard to find rare, unique and hard to find pull down maps and charts, as well as authentic artwork of fine line, brilliant colors and decorative ephemera accent pieces for your wall. Among our favorites in the shop include botanical art, where many of the items offered are true watercolor paintings: Perfect aesthetic and colors for the spring.
Be on the lookout for new arrivals and our ONH original section where you will find old-world and vintage inspired original artwork and furniture created by Melissa and Dave.
