Happy Holidays from!

Wishing all our clients, colleagues, and friends out there Happy Holidays!  Last weekend saw the beginning of the Passover holiday, as well as Easter.  The Passover holiday concludes this weekend, with tomorrow, Friday 4/10 being part of the holiday, and our showroom being closed in observance.  This Sunday brings Orthodox Easter.  And to round it all out, many schools have been closed this past week for Spring Break, which for beleaguered and overworked student, is truly a holy occasion!  All in all, it’s a week of rest, family togetherness, spirituality, and religious observance.

And for those who religiously observe the happenings in the PGNY Rug Blog, you can find many of our antique oriental rugs and period European tapestries available for sale that will make you say “Holy Moly!

Check out our online offerings of antique Persian and Turkish carpets, antique and period European tapestries, a fine Suzani textile, and some rare vintage pillows on the following sites:

Happy holidays again from all of us here at, and visit us religiously here on the PGNY Rug Blog!


PGNY Adding Casino Gambling to Its Antique Rug Showroom!

The area rug industry has been abuzz about all the recent news coming from the showroom of Persian Gallery New York, with our partnerships with both First Dibs and One Kings Lane, but PGNY’s latest announcement is going to be perhaps the biggest news story of the year!

There has been much made in recent months over the attempts by lawmakers in New York to allow casino gambling to be brought to the city, so as to bring in revenue that would otherwise go to the casinos in Atlantic City, Connecticut, Las Vegas, and beyond.  The Resort World Casino (or “racino”) in Queens is a proven money maker, but only offers video slots, and no real table games as in a full, traditional casino, leaving NYC without any true, full scale casino offerings.

Now, Persian Gallery New York is proud to announce that we are branching out beyond our industry-leading inventory of antique oriental rugs, old Persian carpets, and period and antique European tapestries, and expanding our showroom to include a full scale casino, complete with table games!  This is a game-changer if there ever was one!

After much negotiation, the city legislature has given us the rare and distinct privilege of being the first entity to bring casino gambling to mid-town Manhattan, but on the condition that we integrate and incorporate it into our main business, selling the world’s best antique decorative carpets and tapestries.

As such, we have arrived at a mutually agreeable solution; depending on the dollar amounts at stake in the various table games in our new hybrid carpet showroom and casino (“carp-sino”) will put our incredible rugs and tapestries at stake for table game results at given times throughout the day!  You can play Let It Ride, and ride away with a beautiful Tabriz carpet!  You can play Pai Gow, and fly away with an Art Deco Chinese rug!  The possibilities are endless!

Oh, and we must add, APRIL FOOL’S!!!!

We hope you enjoyed this bit of April Fool’s levity, and that you will browse our site for the world’s best selection of antique and vintage decorative carpets, old oriental rugs, and antique tapestries!  Happy holidays to our colleagues, clients, and friends celebrating Easter and Passover!
