has a story
At King’s House, little compares to the profound beauty of an antique rug. The intricacy, craftsmanship and astounding durability of these masterpieces is interwoven with a vibrant and complex history in each rug. Owner & Rug Historian Christin Terrell has made a life’s work of searching for these pieces of artistic precision and telling the stories that shape them, from The Silk Road, North Africa and Nepal to the King’s House Oriental Rugs showroom.
The search for these works of art take Christin all over the world; from The Silk Road to North Africa and Nepal, where she hand-selects each rug for their Birmingham showroom.The Making of King’s House
