Our Enhanced Posture in Response to Recent Events
Dear Clients and Friends,
As the information regarding our shared global challenge unfolds, we at Claremont are responding quickly to provide for the safety of our staff and visitors. We are vigorously endeavoring to keep our facilities sanitized and invite you to continue to visit our gracious galleries. We have also enhanced our operations to ensure the same seamless service you have come to expect throughout our in-home shopping and installations.
Because the great majority of our business is absentee, we have increased our availability to clients by phone from 9:30 am to 6:00 pm Pacific Time, Monday through Saturday. We will also respond to emails and voicemails on Sundays. We have enhanced our ability to ship rugs on approval expeditiously to meet our customers’ needs. We have increased our availability to do in-home presentations for our Northern and Southern California clients.
Just last week, in addition to serving a series of clients in our gallery and through approval shipping, we completed a Whole Home Collection project, and assisted two clients to enhance their burgeoning rug collections through home visits.
We are continuing to make advantageous purchases to keep our selection fresh and unparalleled. We have just acquired a small but significant 35-piece collection to supplement the Claremont trove.
In periods of challenge, art-level antique Oriental rugs greatly elevate our spirits and support thoughts of resilience and renewal. In the weeks to come, along with sharing many new rug acquisitions online, we plan to email you illustrated material from lectures and articles I have contributed to. Topics will include the emotive power of balanced color in the best antique rugs, how weavers used uplifting ancient symbolism in their carpets, and the inspiring role of harmonious art in our lives.
Please stay safe and well, and know that we remain enthusiastically available to support your interest in antique art carpets.
