Assisting Silicon Valley Clients in Building Collections of Antique Art-Level Persian and Oriental Carpets Since 1980

In the southern Bay Area lies Silicon Valley, the technology center of the West Coast. Over the years, Claremont Rug Company has had the honor of working with many clients in Silicon Valley to adorn their estates with the most lovely antique Persian & tribal rugs from our collection. Whether a client has a modern downtown Palo Alto condo or a stately family home in Crescent Park, our expansive collection of 19th to early 20th century antique art carpets pair impressively with a variety of decor styles. Many of our Silicon Valley clients begin by decorating their home with one or two antique rugs. But quickly they find that living with an antique rug not only enhances the beauty of a room but also enlivens the atmosphere of a space in a way that only a handmade piece of art with over a hundred years of heritage can.

Our collection of antique Persian and Oriental rugs are each hand-woven and one of a kind which makes decorating with them a truly transformative experience. Above see how instead of placing a larger rug under the breakfast table, these savvy antique Oriental carpet connoisseurs have placed this wide runner alongside, where it can be seen in all its unaffected splendor from anywhere in the room. Whether your home is in Hillsborough, Atherton or San Jose, contact us to arrange a home-walkthrough/consultation or rug showing.
