Rug News andDesign sends heartfelt greetings to all the people inside and outside of the industry who celebrate with us a passion for the rug business.

The picture is the Stroh family tree in the country, decorated with ornaments handcrafted by friends using 19th century candy molds.  As I write this, Sarah Stroh, co-editor is still a refugee from the Thomas Fire, but she is attempting to return to Ojai in time for Christmas.

New York City is the center of the universe and it has sent out the best Holiday Greeting.  It’s just the way we at Rug News andDesign feel.

We got a lot of semi greetings, but they were actually headlines for special end of the year offers.  The only two we got that were devoid of a sales pitch were:

Nourison had a traditional message and picture:

Tufenkian used a glorious tree in a comfortable room setting with only a peek at a rug.  The message did was:

From our family to yours. Thank you for another year as a valued client and partner. From all of us at Tufenkian Carpets, we wish you a wonderful holiday season.

Please note that our offices and showrooms will be closed December 23rdthrough January 1st. We look forward to working with you again in 2018.

And as NYC says:  Happy Whatever Holiday you choose to celebrate.  And remember that after the 21st, the world will get brighter for all of us
