Design, Material, and Workmanship in Antique Carpets from Around the World
“Antique carpets are our passion; delighting clients is our mission.”
Barrington Fine Rug Gallery has been invited to participate in the 2019 Art in the Barn. The presentation will feature the fine art of hand-woven carpets by examining the design, material, and workmanship in antique carpets. We will share our love, knowledge, and experience of this art with the audience.
The program will include rugs from the major weaving centers around the world including the Middle East, Africa, Asia, and Europe from the 15th to the early 20th centuries.
Barrington Fine Rug Gallery is a luxury boutique of curated fine antique and vintage handwoven area rugs. We also feature antique tapestries and textiles from around the world. Over the past half a century, we have searched the globe to acquire and assemble one of the finest collections of handcrafted rugs. The collection is unique in every aspect of overall design artistry, materials used, and workmanship.
Barrington Fine Rug Gallery is located in the Historic Ice House Mall and Village Shops in downtown Barrington, IL.
