YOUR FULL SERVICE RUG AUTHORITY
PAO is a trusted source for more than just oriental rugs. For a decade now we have curated a vast array of individual, hand selected, one of a kind pieces for our clients. This includes rugs and carpets of all sizes, shapes and color palettes; as well as textiles, pillows and rug covered accessories. We approach rugs and carpets from a historical and geographic point of view. Every piece tells a story of its region. We have a passion for global goods and can't wait to tell you the provenance of our wares. We put together collections for clients and often make home visits by appointment to find the perfect piece. We do offer restoration services through our vendors across the globe.
