When the rug bug bit Brent and Katryn Steelman some 16 years ago, a new journey began although we did not know it at the time. We had been operating a highly regarded bicycle business since the early 1980s, and if that wasn't enough already, in 2002 we opened a space in the San Francisco Antique & Design Mall. We imported and sold antique furniture and oriental rugs. When the antiques market experienced its contraction we decided to continue with just rugs.
Katryn Steelman is a visually driven artist by nature and by training, and is currently active as a painter. She has a deep appreciation of antique rugs and her talents with color and form are key to working with clients and curating our collection. Her keen eye for detail and process is also integral to our rug washing operation.
Brent Steelman has a long history as a bespoke bicycle builder so he is no stranger to aesthetically pleasing functional objects. His love of rugs, quest for rug knowledge, and desire to bring clients superior products and services, is the foundation of our business.
If you are on the hunt for just the right rug or you have rugs that need servicing, please don't be a stranger. We are here to help, and hope to share some rug passion and experiences.
