What I find particularly impressive about her portfolio of work is that each space feels fresh and warm, full of character, interest, and the unique story of its owner. 

In early 2020, District Rug Shoppe collaborated with Alison to produce a 4-part instagram TV series to outline the fundamentals of vintage rugs for our audiences. Watch the videos below for a brief summary of what makes vintage rugs a worthwhile investment, full of the soul, character, and authentic beauty that we all seek in our homes!
