Welcome to the brand new PGNY Rug Blog, on the redesigned and relaunched PGNY.com! This year, in time for the beginning of Metro Market Week 2014, Persian Gallery New York is debuting its biggest revamp yet to its popular website, www.pgny.com, and as part of that, its highly regarded blog is also making the move to WordPress.
Browse through the redesigned PGNY.com to see all the wonderful new things that have been added to make it easier than ever to browse Persian Gallery’s industry-leading collection of antique oriental rugs, unique decorative carpets, and period European tapestries. You’ll quickly see that this is more than just a facelift, as PGNY.com has been rebuilt from the ground up.
Picture viewing is greatly improved with the new PGNY.com, as the rug and tapestry images are larger and clearer than ever before, with a dramatic new zoom function that lets the viewer get up close and personal with each image, to get a truly detailed perspective of how each items looks.
There are also many new categories to explore within PGNY.com, including the new Press Page and Glossary sections, an upgraded and simplified Search section, new rug and tapestry categories, and much more.
And then there’s this, the new and improved, WordPress powered PGNY Rug Blog. We will revisit some topics that were addressed in the previous Blogs, and cover many exciting new things in the world of antique rugs and tapestries, and in related fields.
This week, the big news is that the unofficial end of summer, Labor Day, has come and gone, and the area rug business is back in full swing with the return of Metro Market Week, the NYICS show at the NY Pavilion, and the NY Rug Show at the Jacob Javits Center.
We will have more information about those shows soon, but meanwhile, thanks for reading, and we’re happy to have you join us in our maiden voyage on the new PGNY Rug Blog. Sending a special thanks to the crew at Melotec for making our previous website and the original PGNY Rug Blog as big a success as it has been.
It’s onward and upward, and we look forward to discussing all things oriental rug with you right here in this space…
