For years we've been friends with our colleague, Paul Alan Davison, the proprietor of David Alan Rugs, and his amazing team, Rod Avila and Fernando Hernandez. And, for years we have also been neighbors of the finest floor rug experts in Austin. Their selection and expertise has put them at the forefront of the decorative rug industry for 26 years, and we feel honored to know them! When we first decided to invest in our photography to unequivocally capture our French antique furniture and decorative objects at its best, we reached out to Paul. And David Alan Rugs partnered with us in our venture to help our customers see our pieces in a glorious home environment which included the beautiful rugs. And what a wonderful partnership it's been!
If you're in the Austin area, you should strongly consider a visit to their incredible showroom in beautiful downtown Austin. Contemporary, traditional, transitional, even leather hide rugs; it doesn't get much better than this. Those of you with a love of a tactile experience will appreciate feeling the texture of a rug before installing it in your home. And you'll never question whether you made the right choice by working with this amazing crew!
Cathy and Pierre have both always appreciated the French Art Deco period most of all. You can read about their love of French Art Deco in our previous blog here. And so it is no surprise that they gravitate toward geometric patterns in floor coverings as well. Here are a few of our favorite geometric rugs from David Alan Rugs.
A close second-favorite aesthetic for us at Négrel Antiques is the collection of abstract contemporary designs at David Alan Rugs. Fun, energetic, and downright thought-provoking, some of these rugs really stretch our conceptions of what a floor covering can truly be! Have a look at some of the coolest rugs we've ever seen. What can you see in your home; traditional or contemporary?
Have we mentioned how much we love these rugs? It's an absolute pleasure to be in the presence of such luxury; we just want to share more with you. Here are some more of our favorite recent photo shoots we did with the wonderful collection from David Alan Rugs.
