Hot Sale

Rug Job: Oriental Rugs, ABC Carpet & Home, 888 Broadway, at 19th Street, March 6–23.


Does the world really need another rug sale? Actually, yes. Iranians who fled after the revolution, their fortunes tied up in their rugs, have raised children who, shockingly, don’t want to follow them into the family business.

So? Well, that, plus the collapse of the market for a nice $50,000 Tabriz, means vendors have piles of great merch, so ABC has rounded up the best for a grand bazaar.

Oh, great. Skyscraper stacks of rugs—how to choose? ABC’s Graham Head has weeded out the riffraff, leaving rugs “I never thought I’d see again.” Prices from $299 for a throw to $70,000 for a rare, museum-quality piece.

And the catch is . . . What part of “up to 75 percent off” don’t you understand?
