Antiques Beneath Your Feet
WITH FIVE YEARS PROVENANCE IN UPPINGHAM, THE RUG STUDIO’S RACHEL SIMPSON SPECIALISES IN THE INTRIGUING WORLD OF ANTIQUE AND ARTIST RUGS.
Beautiful construction, unique design and colours and a true reflection of the culture of their origin.
Whether from Persia, Afghanistan, India, Turkomen or Caucasian, Rachel Simpson’s 1,000+ rugs all tell the story of their origin in their intricate hand-made design, colour and pattern, some even giving away the specific village of their origin in their design.
For twenty four years, five in Uppingham, Rachel and her team have sourced specific rugs for both clients, sold ones she has selected from across the world, and has cleaned or restored rugs for clients and her own stock.
From doormat-sized rugs to 7m x 5m ones, antiques from 1860-1900, or semi-old and contemporary limited edition modern ex- amples, the choice is limited only by the available space over the three floors of the charming 18th century building in which The Rug Studio is based. From 17th to the 31st March Rachel will host a contemporary and ‘latest trend’ exhibition at the shop, whilst June will see the firm celebrate its fifth anniversary of being based in Uppingham.
Otherwise, with bespoke stools, cushions and even handbags, from around the world and across the whole panoply of styles and age range, The Rug Studio remains the place to go to for expert advice. There, you’ll find a genuine antique or modern contemporary which will hopefully appreciate in value and will prove both useful, and beautiful in your home, generation after generation.
