C John Rare Rugs, 43A South Audley Street, London W1K 2PU
PAIAM members attended to an evening at C John Rare Rugs in the heart of Mayfair on Wednesday 22 November 2017.
C John Rare Rugs is home to hundreds of beautiful rugs, carpets and tapestries ranging from the antique to the contemporary. Each of their pieces is a story of inspiration, hard work and craftsmanship learned over many years and combined with an underlying belief in creativity and beauty. C John Rare Rugs received the Royal Warrant as suppliers of carpets to Queen Elizabeth II in 1966 and continues to be the only carpet gallery in the world to hold the warrant.
This event provided a wonderful opportunity to view the gallery and members were treated to a fascinating introduction to the world of rugs and tapestries by gallery owner, Leon Sassoon. New members also gave elevator pitches and the atmosphere was convivial and festive. It was the last PAIAM event in London for 2017 finished the year off in good fashion.
