This month’s featured client is Richard Scott Waid., a long-time rug collector with a great appreciation for the hand-woven craftsmanship of Persian rugs – and he shared with us his thoughts and tips on rug collecting —

What inspired you to begin your Persian rug collection?

“I think these rugs are amazing works of art that sometimes take over a year or more to create. I think they add life to any room and they possess a unique charm that nothing comes close to matching.”

What particular selection criteria do you have when buying a rug? Please share your tips and tricks with other rug enthusiasts.

“My first criteria is a handmade rug. I tend to collect rugs that are more traditional in style and exhibit excellent craftsmanship with detailed, symmetrical and well-defined designs. Higher knot count tends to go hand in hand with sharp detailed designs, but I don’t necessarily decide on knot count alone. I also like Gabbeh rugs, but if I am buying a Gabbeh, I try to find one that is unusual and of great quality.”
